Thanks Raul for the sample.
Okay, this is my first venture into the world of Yerba Mates…so this could change my desire to try others…but then again, I should try others to make a full decision on yerba mates in general.
Having stated that…
I didn’t care for this tea. I love lime & pistachio. And I love green rooibos. But just didn’t care for them in this combination. I brewed a pot with the sample given to me & I followed the steeping directions. The tea smelled good in the bag. I got the lime. I didn’t get much of the pistachio. And during brewing it was a lime smell mostly…but it seemed to get more faint & not more strong as I would have expected.
I added a little Sugar in the Raw thinking it would help bring out the flavor. Nope. I even added a fresh slice of lime. Nope.
But I did get a funky aftertaste like I would had I used Splenda as a sweetener. Is that normal for yerba mates? I don’t know…
Overall, I’m glad I got to try this tea, but I wouldn’t buy it. Sorry. Not my cuppa tea.
