Described as an evening Mate tea with Kava Kava, Chamemile, and Lavendar. My thoughts follow:

-Smells predominantly like Kava
-Tastes a lot like Kava with mate undertones
-Balances both very well
-Accidently left this bag in car (very hot) which makes smell funky (beware)
-Very smooth and tasty
-Kava hint is awesome
-Relaxed after all the mate I had sampled
-Kind of funky with honey though.
-LOVED THIS IDEA AND EXECUTION. As a Kava drinker myself, Oregon Yerba Mate did a great job introducing Kava to mate without leaving one or the other out.

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.
