This was a first for me – I’d never had maté before! In this blend, I’m still not really sure what mate tastes like, but it doesn’t seem bad. I am sort of afraid of the caffeine content, though! I can tolerate a couple cups of black tea spread over the day, but I never drink coffee so I’m not used to large amounts of caffeine at one time. Anyone know how much caffeine maté generally has? Anyway, I only made half a cup and mostly tasted the chocolate. Not too bad, but nothing special.

I would say that the caffeine in Mate is higher than in black tea… although I am not sure of the exact amounts in either. I will say that as someone who used to drink coffee but could not tolerate the effects, I find that Mate is not as harsh as coffee is.
