This is my first time trying Yerba Mate other than in a blend of oolong and mate kombucha. Unlike the other two reviews at this time, I actually liked the flavors, though on the initial steep I’d recommend using cooler water (130* – 140* F) to avoid leaching out a bit of bitterness.

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Grass, Nuts, Tobacco

Preparation
140 °F / 60 °C 5 min, 0 sec 6 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

This is my standard yerba mate and I love it becauee it has the right blend of cut leaves, dust and sticks for traditional preparation in a gourd with hot but not boiling water. It has a lingering herbavious taste suited for experienced yerba mate drinkers. Sure there are better mates around but this one is a consistent and reliable daily drinker.

Cruz de Malta makes one with anise added that is amazing, especially con leche (I prefer soy).

This was the first Yerba Mate I tried and it got me hooked! It is one of the smoothest. If you have always wanted to try YM, this is an excellent one to start with. Nowadays I mainly have Rosamonte, but will buy Cruz de Malta if on special.

This is the classic mate. Very smooth. It was the first kind I ever tried and still a favorite.

Amazingly I never get grossed out by sharing the bombilla — passing it around while chatting + getting caffeinated is the way maté actually nourishes the soul.
