First, I’m not really a big fan of spiced teas. This came in a sampler pack so I thought I’d give it a try, especially since I’m a big toasted mate fan. First, the smell is very strong. I was not looking forward to tasting. But despite the strong smell, the spice taste actually takes a back seat to the smooth mate flavor. Not the best mate I’ve tried, but not the worst either.
