I’m so glad to have finally tried a straight yerba. (Shouldn’t we just call it yerba if it’s not in a mate?)
Classic choice from Monstrositea and the fourth of four from the August box. Hooray for this! Glad to finally try it after being curious (and yet hesitant) for so long. I have gladly found that I really enjoy it.
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
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.
