Needing a kick this morning, so I’m trying this mate.
Dry scent is very bright and citrusy, like oils from lemons and oranges, perhaps a hint of lemongrass.
The liquor is a cloudy greenish golden with a more vegetal scent, the citrus nose is still there but a little more mild.
The taste is sweet-sour with a faint lemon zest aftertaste. There’s a grassy flavor from the mate shining through with a bit of bitterness. It’s strong but not overwhelming if you keep in mind this is definitely a citrus tea (note, I used 2 tsps for 12 oz., I needed some motivation). It would be good iced, perhaps a touch of honey.
If bitten by the citrus bug, this would do the trick for me; I would buy this again.
