I was a little disappointed in the taste – I thought it would taste more chocolate/mocha-y, but it definitely did the trick for a morning boost.

Tried this one this morning. It was ok. Smelled better than it tasted. Tried it on it’s own and then with a little cream and sugar. Liked it better with cream and sugar, but still not my favorite mate. Sort of reminiscent of coffee in scent alone. Not a ton of flavor to it.
I received this tea as a Christmas gift, which is good because I never would have picked it out myself (the ingredients don’t exactly draw me in). The biggest impression I get from this tea is that of warmth. The woodsy mate combined with a slightly burnt coffee taste give a very cozy, warming sensation. This tea is very suited to someone who lives where winters get to -45 degrees celsius, like me ;) It really takes the chill out, and definitely peps you up.
I was looking through some mate teas to try out and this jumped out at me (haha, no pun intended). Took it to work for some pre-work teatime. The taste reminds me of somewhat like a cross between a barley tea and roasted green tea. Very delicious. It has a smooth aftertaste which makes sipping this tea all the more easier. I will definitely buy again.
I’ll admit that I was majorly turned off by the smell, both dry & steeped. It had a weird coffee-y smell, & I don’t really like coffee unless it’s a mocha. However, this tastes nice. I guess it’s what coffee tastes like without the bitter kick. Very mellow, the coffee beans & mate blend nicely. Has a coffee/green taste, which sounds weird, & it is, but it works. Not sweet, but I didn’t need to add sweetener to drink it either.
On opening the package, I could smell the grassy elements in the tea for sure. I was a little wary about the grassiness, as rooibos, in my experience, tends to smell similar to this. I took my infuser out at about the five minute mark. I could taste the coffee, which was predominant, with undertones of chocolate. The finish was a little grassy though. Not sure if I’ll buy it though.
