Described as traditional chai but with mate as the base instead of black tea.
Sampled with my girlfriend Kate, our opinions will be serperate:

Kate: (I took notes as she sampled)

-Mild chai flavor
-Good traditional mate with Chai notes on way out.
-Earthy chai smell: Pleasant
“Was exactly what I’d want from Chai Mate”


-Too bitter at first
-More sips became smooth
-Most chai blends too much chai, but this one made mate big player which I love because I love mate of course.
-Smells strong, almost too much when dry, could have been me leaving it accidently in my car for a day. Loved this taste, didn’t get a chance with milk and honey but I can bet it would be amazing

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.
