I originally bought this mate because teaopia discontinued their peach mate, which was my boyfriend’s favorite. This has become our new favorite tea, it is so delicious. Raspberry takes the forefront and the lemon kind of lingers in the background. This is perfect for people who don’t really enjoy the taste of mate, such as myself, I find it rather chalky and unpleasant. A great tea to have for mate beginners, or someone desiring a pleasant change.
3 Tasting Notes
I have to admit, I originally bought this tea because of one of my guilty obsessions, Vampire Diaries. This however, has become one of my favorite herbal teas. The carrot is the top note with a touch of spice that lingers underneath, it almost reminds me of liquid carrot cake. I think I’ll go make a cup now..
A cup of this tea is a great way to wind down after a long stressful day. It gives you a strange body high that seems to slow things down. It tastes pretty good, for a herbal tea, and the flavor can easily be changed and sweetened with a touch of agave nectar.
