I am a fan of fruit but not so much grassy, and while this has both, they seem to cancel out each other, thus something I am now dubbing frassy in flavour—the two elements are there but together they somehow fail at being either. The addition of honey I hoped would give the fruity the win, but it really just tastes like honey now sigh. Pretty unremarkable. Yawn. Am curious about the sustaining “mateine” effects, so will report back later.
ETA: I didn’t get the woozy jitters like I do with strong plain caffeine, but I don’t feel tired at all, so a tentative thumbs up to the stimulating effects!

Mateine is another word for caffeine. They are the same thing.

Hello! I’m pretty new to the tea world. I fell in love with loose leaf tea fairly recently and started learning everything I could about it…now I work at a tea store and have discovered I am a) totally nutters about tea and b) will never know as much as I want to about it, which is everything. I am on a quest to figure out the meaning of very good tea, from very humble beginnings.
