I got a new job the other day and decided to celebrate by treating myself to copious amounts of tea! I ADORE mate (can’t live without those stimulants!) but was worried that the artificially flavoring would make it cloyingly sweet.
Scent: Tootsie rolls + raspberry flavored cough syrup + maple syrup. Yuck… its not very appetizing. Every time I take a sip I’m expecting medicine. Luckily this mate tastes completely different than it smells!
Flavour: its pretty decent, but not the best mate or dessert tea I’ve had. I honestly expected it to be better because of the rave reviews I read. Its smooth, chocolatey and surprisingly thin, with an artificial almond aftertaste that coats your mouth for a while. This would make a good dessert mate though, I’ll try it next time I get the munchies! I can see myself craving this on a cold, rainy morning.
