drank Citrus Mate by Adagio Teas
1613 tasting notes

Sipdown! I made this iced last week, and that was probably the biggest mistake EVER! I had left a bag of citrus mate steeping in cool water for a few hours and saw that the liquid was getting a honey brown color so I removed it. I let it cool in the fridge overnight. The next morning I tried it and it was EXTREMELY bitter. Like medicinal bitter. Like I crushed up ibuprofen and drank it. UGH!

SO, today I had just a tiny bit left of leaf so I tried it hot. I steeped it for 45 seconds. Ahh… much better. It has the citrus scent to it; though I have had this tea for years! This thing is OLD. It isn’t as flavorful as it once was, but I am not a huge mate fan to begin with. I had only enjoyed Guayaki’s yerba mates in the past (and as a side note, I am not even sure if I would like it as much today as I did then).

Funny how tastes change through time right?

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
