I decided a while back that I needed some more black teas and give Mate teas a try, in my cupboard for when I need something to help me get moving before work. So been trying some different black teas: Success with the 2 loose leaf EG’s and Tower of London. So far have tried 3 Mate teas so far: a plain Yerba Mate, Caribbean Calypso by Teavana and this one. The 1st….shudders I didn’t like it at all. The Caribbean Calypso, I love and I can’t wait to get more. This one…I was a bit apprehensive when I saw Yerba Mate was in it. But then I thought…why not try it? (Got it as one of the samples along with the Sweet Indulgence sampler for Christmas.)

Meh. The taste was all the Yerba Mate taste that I remembered from the other one. Hmm, in looking at the ingredients list on DT’s website I notice coffee bean…now I can’t stand coffee, so that might be part of why I couldn’t even bear to finish this tea.

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
