Great look: I LOVE Numi’s drawings and art. Best art in industry.
Very Smooth: This drink is incredibly smooth. I love the sediments. Due to the supply of Mate Factor Fresh Green Yerba Mate as their base. Lemon Mate is always a bit rough to drink without sugar or juice, but very smooth, sometimes a bit stringent if brewed for too long
Very Lemony: As said before if brewed for too long a bit stringent. I love mate, so I enjoy more predominant mate, but I understand Numi’s customer base.
Taste is awesome, kept me warm. I drank this on the first day of cold in Denver, and it did the trick.

I really enjoy Numi, as MateFactor supplies their Mate which makes it very smooth. I don’t know the percentages of Green Tea and Yerba Mate, but maybe cut the Green Tea in half and Double the Mate and it would become a staple for Shade Tree

Bio

Shade Tree Mate is an exposure site and blog for Yerba Mate, and now a new Herbal Tea from Ecuador ‘Guayusa.’

My goal for the blog and site is to be a driving force in the industry where every aspect of Mate is covered. I love Mate, and it is my passion and I hope to spread the word, as well as inform and entertain.

I want to make Yerba Mate/Guayusa as nostalgic as Coffee is in consumers’ eyes.
