I am so glad we finally got a tin of mate. It saves my life on workdays! Amaretto is my new love, which is surprising since I don’t usually like amaretto liquor or almond-flavored things. But something about this blend is just enchanting. And if you find Amaretto by itself to be too sweet, the earthiness of the mate brings it down a bit. But this was just absolutely lovely and was a great moment of peace within a hectic workday. This is definitely one I will reach for again and again.

If you’re looking to set a romantic mood, look no further than this delicate almond-laced blend. It’s a sweet marzipan dream, made of almond slices, apricots, orange blossoms and rose petals, all in a base of lapacho bark. Never heard of lapacho? Sometimes called “the tea of the Inkas,” people in South American have been using it for ages to cure just about everything, including a lacklustre love life. Get ready: your next grand romance is just a cup away.
