drank Green Mate (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
29 tasting notes

My first straight mate! Done for the week (in terms of homework), so decided to experiment!

First off, the leaves look so nice. Evenly chopped, and such a bright green. The smell is weird though not unpleasant, reminded me of straw, sort of.
The brew looks green, a bit muddy, not the clear colors one usually gets with tea. It now smells even more like straw, and wet ones at that. The taste is also weird, and aside from that it is slightly bitter and…smoky?, I am really at a loss at how to explain it.

Maybe if I try it cold I might like it better. We’ll see.
