Needed a pick me up this morning so mate it is. Grabbed a sample size of this during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.

It’s not bad, but I’m not sure I’d purchase again. It’s got that lovely yerba mate taste (that I enjoy at least, I know not everyone does) that’s a bit herbaceous. The fruity bits add a nice sweetness, and the rose hips make it a little tangy. Getting to the bottom of my cup I am getting some slight bitterness.
I did brew this two ways, once at 150 degrees and once at 190. I think the 150 works for the mate, but the fruit flavors don’t come out as much. I think the 190 may be a bit much for the mate and may be giving it that slight bitterness.

Tea: Around 1.5-2 tsp
Water: 8 oz
Additives: none
Brewing method: Ingenuitea
