drank Yerba Mate by Guayaki
58 tasting notes

I have some serious a$$-kicking work to do today, so I thought it was time to bust this out again. My pack is a couple of years old—-I originally had it sitting in my desk at the library at which I used to work, when I was trying different ways of waking myself up in the morning.

At any rate, despite it being a couple of years old, this mate actually lasts really, really well. It doesn’t taste at all old or musty, and while a 5-minute steep may seem a little long, it’s really not much at all (especially considering that I usually am all about strong black teas).

Totally brilliant, I am very awake and focused, just as I need to be. Now, after having written this review, back to work with me—-as mentioned earlier, I’ve got a lot to do today. :)

I love teas that can push me up into ass-kicking gear.

@Wiseman Tea Company : Oooh, that looks promising! I’ve added it to my shopping list, thanks for telling me about it. :)

@takgoti ME TOO. Actually, my usual “first cuppa,” Yorkshire Tea, is pretty good at that too. It’s just not quite as immediate as this yerba mate is. :)
