I’m not going to give this a numerical rating because I don’t often like fruity teas, nor do I usually like green mate, and so I feel unqualified to rate.

I got this tea as part of my huge sample order at Fusion and as one of many attempts to try teas I don’t usually like. There have been surprises before, Fusion’s Blueberry Rooibos, for example, where I didn’t expect to like a tea but ended up LOVING it.

But alas, not this time. The mate and the raspberry were quite dominant, and I didn’t get much of the cocoa. If you like mate and raspberry, this tea is for you.

I’m not giving up on this yet. I will now try it iced. Hmm…can you ice mate?

We love your openness to try new things. Mate is very unique and can be an acquired taste to some. Keep in mind, you want to use water no hotter than 180 and only steeped for 5 minutes or so. You don’t want a bitter cup. Sweetener can help mask any bitterness.
Mate can absolutely be iced but I would only drink roasted mate as an iced latte. Good Luck :)
