This tea is glorious. Probably one of my absolute favourite teas ever. The idea of “Green” Rooibos is totally new to me and this baby is friggin’ delicious. I love Lupicia’s teas in the first place, but man this one is the best of the best. The grapefruit flavouring is very present and tangy – sweet citrusy notes galore. The lemongrass adds a very nice vibe and the fact that it’s herbal too is good for those late nights where you want a cuppa but don’t want to have a bunch of caffeine to keep you up. This tea is life-changingly good. I tore through a small bag in next-to-no-time at all. I’m getting more as soon as possible. This tea is epic.

So, this was the first time I actually tried Yerba Mate and I know this is Samovar’s twist on it, but yeah… it was super intense and kinda weird. I eventually got used to the flavour somewhat and I really enjoyed the experience of the metal straw and cool clay pot to drink out of, but wow, SO intense!!!! It was a bit like trying Lapsang Souchong for the first time. Kinda weird, too intense, but kinda fun for the same reasons. Interesting, but wouldn’t rush to order it again. Would be keen to try a different Yerba Mate somewhere else to see if Samovar’s was just made too strong.
