I steeped this for about 6 minutes. It was really good. I previously drank Guayaki Yerba Mate, which is really good as well, but La Merced’s is less bitter. Guayaki tends to be very “woody” and “dirty.” That’s not necessarily bad to me, but after drinking this tea – it’s just smoother. Good stuff.

Hubby is drinking this to try to clear his sinuses. I had a few sips – It’s heavy on the ginger, with a hint of lemon. The yerba mate flavor is there but not too aggressive. (Yerba mate tastes too woody/burnt for me usually). I told him if he hated it I would drink it, so I guess it’s not too mate-y.
