A very potent blend. Almost overwhelmingly minty. Shade Tree has never loved smells and perfumy type things. This does not cross that line though, but when I drink this from now on I blend a half and half blend with Traditional and Peppermint, then the Peppermint is cut down a bit and it is more mild for my pallet. I have never been huge on mint tastes, but this is a nice because it only has 2 ingredients. I think that is another thing I like about Runa, straight to the point and doesn’t hide the ingredient that is reps. Many tea companies in the game should learn that if you are going to rep on product don’t hide it under ingredients.

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.
