Got a sample of this in a recent order and thought I would give it a shot. My friend is absolutely raving about this tea, thinks it is fantastic, so I wanted to give it a fair shot. I went in knowing I am really not a coffee fan and I am iffy on mate, but intrigued by all that this tea promised. I brewed it up and tossed in a pinch of sugar just to be safe then let it cool a bit… and might have forgotten about it. No worries though, I managed to catch it as close to the perfect drinking temp. I took my first sip and thought okay, this is drinkable. Not my fave by far, but definitely not a bad blend. I am not and never will be a fan of coffee, so I was not destined to love having it in my tea. That being said, the tea was well blended and I think it was an interesting idea, just not for me!
