18 Tasting Notes
This is a really tasty way to drink your maté. My only complaint is that the tea bags themselves don’t lend themselves to squeezing. One time I squeezed the bag after steeping and it came open slightly, letting the contents escape into my mug. I don’t think I squeezed any harder than usual, but perhaps.
I use this when I’m feeling a cold coming on – I swear by echinacea and zinc as cold prevention remedies so this just makes a good addition to the supplements I already take. This is nice when you’re feeling a bit crummy and a hot cup of tea sounds good. I actually find it very similar to the Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer, but perhaps a bit more minty in the aftertaste. I don’t drink this very often because I prefer to have it on hand when I feel like I’m catching a cold.
I needed a new tea for the office and thought I’d try out the infamous Morning Thunder from Seinfeld. The roasted, smoky flavor is really intriguing. It made me feel quite alert yet relaxed at the same time if that’s possible. I’m definitely developing a taste for maté.
