Maybe try it in less than boiling water? Maté gets bitter if it’s oversteeped.

Hmmm, you didn’t get sweet in there?

AmazonV

nope no sweet – i’ll give a lower (green setting?) temp a try in the breville and ignore the tin and see what i get

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
