A review of Organic Yerba Mate by Guayaki
Date: 10/18/2012
Company: Guayaki
Tea Name: Organic Yerba Mate
Tea Type/Varietal: yerba mate
Region: South America
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: dark color/ dark like the forest at night
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 180 Fahrenheit
Time: 10 minutes

Note: I spent a good part of the day drinking this tea to find out what indeed it would do for me. What I notice with the longer steeps is that the color darkens and taste bitter at first and gradually one can taste the different herbs of this tea. Not so much different herbs but to realize that it is herbal tea, tea leaves but not camellia sinensis.

Yerba Mate is known as the most balanced tea in that it delivers both energy and nutrition; and a good reason to continue drinking this tea.

185 °F / 85 °C 8 min or more

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
Steepster is offering: Steepster Select and together we’ll explore the world’s most interesting teas; with one free month and the resuming price of $24.95 for the remainder and one is free to cancel at anytime. I have no income and I live on my husband income; so would this be un-wise to do knowing where my life is at right now?
It is something to consider and thank you for the invite. Thank you for Steepster.com’s community of tea drinkers, tasters, reviewers, aficionados and all.
