Finally got around to trying this sample! Upon opening the package, it immediately brought to mind caramel candies! After steeping, I could smell the roasted mate at the forefront. I added a little sugar in the raw and a tiny bit of milk (again with the caramel candy vibe, I felt it needed a ‘creamy’ texture).

It’s definitely not terrible. By the second cup, it’s grown on me. It also isn’t likely to be one I’ll order in the future.

I’m an avid drinker of black, green, and white teas. I also enjoy oolong and the occasional herbal. I am somewhat experimental by blending my own teas from what’s in my cupboard, which is a collection of local shops and larger online retailers.

I strongly prefer hot tea over iced, without sugar, and only rarely add milk, usually to cool down my black teas.
