drank Yerba Mate by Guayaki
10 tasting notes

I love this yerba mate! It has been absolutely essential in getting me through some early mornings. I like it best steeped far longer than other teas. I’ve been known to leave it for 15-30 minutes before drinking it. Honestly, this is only one of 3 different yerba mates I’ve tried, so that world is still wide open to me.

I like this with a little powdered agave nectar. It’s like drinking the Earth.

Preparation

30 min???

Well, yeah. See… I often get distracted and forget I’ve got tea steeping. Sometimes that is tragic, but in the case of this one is was a nice discovery. The earthy quality just got stronger and I like that. I haven’t ever had it get too bitter, but I have had it get too cool. Cold yerba mate is more tolerable than cold coffee, but still not great.

Bio

Tea Bio: I love tea, but I’m something of a tea snob. I don’t always know how to articulate what it is I like about the teas I prefer, but I know that I like them. I have a fondness for really cheap iced teas… much like my love for diner coffee, but when it comes to hot tea, it just has to be a good quality tea.

I don’t like milk/cream/soy milk in my teas. Any of them. And that not only includes Earl Grey, but goes especially for it.
