drank Yerba Mate Mango by The Tea Haus
442 tasting notes

Tried this one yesterday morning but didn’t blog it because I used boiling water and . . . it definitely got burnt. It wasn’t horrid, but I decided to wait and retry it today.

I brewed it up today, hopeful since the cup last time had an amazing mango scent despite the burnt factor. The mango flavour is definitely present, and more so the hotter the water. The mate has a nice roasted flavour to it, which doesn’t overpower but instead makes me thing of mango over an open fire. I’ve never tried it, but it can’t be a bad thing, right? And it isn’t in the tea, either. I’m thinking next time I’ll try it on a hotter temperature that isn’t boiling and see if I can get more mango since it was no where near as strong when I brewed it like a green.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
