Thanks to Ian for sending me some of this, the last of my mate samples to review.

I did steep this in my regular infuser mug method, it was at least 7 minutes but I lost track of time. After looking at the picture here on Steepster (which looks like a milkshake), I decided to add soymilk to mine which I think ended up being a good decision. It is lightly minty with a touch of vanilla which makes a good balance with the mate. I am not tempted to run out and order more of this but it’s definitely good. Thanks again, Ian!

This is one of his blends I just loved.

It was good, but minty things are not always my favorite. I liked the chocolate mate. :)

That is one I plan on trying some time. It seems like people really like it.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
