I made this as a latte with almond milk. It’s is a nice-tasting mate. I’m definitely smelling the banana others have noted, and taste that a bit too. It’s a bit offputting for me, sensitive as I am to banana, but the chocolate-raspberry combination works well enough here to make up for it. This has made a nice, creamy latte that tastes rich but not too heavy.
Unfortunately, I’m having the same experience with this as I have with other mates; for some reason mate kind of seems to turn my stomach even if I find one I like the taste of. It’s just doing weird things and making me feel queasy. Ugh! My throat also always feels strange after/while drinking mate. What’s with that?
