From Fusion Teas

Yerba Mate that has been roasted to give it that bold coffee like flavor. Great midday pick me up without the crash. Add your favorite creamer to give it your own fusion flavor.

Simplicity of yerba mate with a dark side. Roasted Matehas a pleasingly astringent, smooth, roasty character that comes from the roasting process the leaves undergo after plucking. Other mate companies just toast their mate, but not us. We like the full roasted dark brew and no fusion flavor here, just plain Roasted Mate. We find ourselves always coming back to this to reset our palate. A staple here in the office. We seem to always have a pot of this brewing.

I guess I didn’t like this very much the first time I tried it, but something changed from then to now, because it went down much easier this time around. On my last note I had decided that I might like it better if I added sugar and cream. I didn’t do that. I had it straight up.

There was still that earthy roasted flavour, but this time around it was more appealing.

Thanks Dexter3657 for sending me this sample!

JustJames

funny how tastes change….. xoxo

scribbles

YES!! I’m kind of surprised and pleased by how my tastes are changing.

JustJames

i seem to be moving away from puerh?!!!! it’s all ysaurella’s fault. all i want to drink now are french teas. sigh. as if this wasn’t an expensive habit before!

scribbles

Yeah…that can get pricey. Right now I’m on a black tea kick.

gmathis

Thank you for reminding me I have a little tin of mate…uh…somewhere. Once I find it, I’ll try with cream and sugar.

scribbles

I didn’t appreciate the earthiness the first time around, and thought cream & sugar might help.

Dexter

I totally agree, my tastes are really changing too – things I used to think were great, now not so much – and starting to appreciate some that didn’t really do it for me. It’s fun to go back to a tea you haven’t had in awhile.

(memo to self – scribbles is on a black tea kick…..I have MOUNTAINS of black tea in my house)

Another from *Dexter3657*’s box of happiness – if this is the Fusion roasted maté you sent?

I’d never had roasted maté before, and given what I’m finding out about my extreme pickiness over roasted flavours in teas, wouldn’t have thought I’d like it much. But it’s a favourite of Dexter’s, so she included some to let me try, and I’m really, really glad she did, as I loved it! I like coffee flavour, just don’t like the actual taste of the stuff, unless it’s well drowned with milk (substitute, these days) and sugar, which just isn’t how I want to drink stuff every day. So anyway, I decided to make it as a latte, and put in about half a teaspoon of coconut palm sugar per cup. I tasted a bit before adding the hot almond milk, and I was surprised at how much I liked it even then, as it had none of the coffee bitterness I dislike, but just a nicely roasted, maybe slightly nuttiness. As a latte – yum! Cara thought it smelled like a fresh scone, which made me rethink my original coffee smell, but I modified it to smelling like a coffee walnut cake. :) We both thought it was delicious anyway.

I didn’t have the straight sleepy attack I had after drinking the green maté cteresa sent me, but I definitely felt more on the relaxed, wouldn’t mind curling up on the sofa side than the energized one! As caffeine after 5 or 6 in the evening decidedly causes me problems sleeping, it’d be kind of cool to discover that maté made a nice bedtime drink! I’d never have tried this without the care package, and am very happy to discover a new kind of tea I really like – thanks again!

Dexter

I am so glad that I sent this to you, and even more happy that you enjoyed it!!!! I like it cold too, sort of a fake iced coffee drink – with sweetener and milk.

Nxtdoor

What? This tastes like coffee? I have some of this too but have yet to try. Didn’t think it was an evening drink and that’s usually when I do most of my drinking.

Dexter

LOL I have no idea what you are going to think it taste’s like, but to me it’s coffee ish. Most companies market it as a morning pick me up. I’m not really caffeine sensitive, I drink it anytime, but it’s not a “put you to sleep” kind of tea for most people. Hallieod being the exception. LOL

Nxtdoor

I’ll drink this first thing tomorrow. I only slept 5 hrs last night, don’t want to chance it today!

Hallieod

I am very glad you did too! :) Thank you again – it’s so much fun trying totally new and different things, and an unexpected hit is even more fun again!
Nxtdoor – take my “tastes like coffee” fairly lightly, whatever about Dexter’s! I’m not a coffee drinker, and would hate you to get your taste buds expecting something the tea didn’t deliver! Will be interested to see if you like it.

I am really conflicted about adding flavoured creamers to teas. I do it with some teas but ultimately I think won’t my teas all taste the same if I keep putting hazelnut creamer in there? What’s the point of purchasing expensive tea then? It’s like buying a bottle of expensive wine so you can make mulled wine.

I have a sample of this from Dexter3657 but after my experience with DAVIDs Jumpy Monkey, I kept choosing other teas over this one until there was no more “new” tea left to try. And last night I read someone else drank this and said it tasted like coffee. I was sold! I could barely wait till today to drink this.

To me, the only way this tastes like coffee is if you maybe ran out of coffee and you ran out of filters too so you decided to just make coffee with yesterday’s grind. :)

I don’t like the smell of the dry leaves and even less so the wet ones. I will keep trying in the spirit of learning but… Yah… That’s when the hazelnut creamer came out of my fridge.

What does this tea taste like? I couldn’t tell you. Maybe straw. Wet straw. Alrighty, then. I am looking forward to my next mate. I mean, if I got to where I could drink Rooibos, I’m sure ill get there with this too!

Dexter

Yep, I see a ton of swaps in our future. If you hate it – I’ll love it. If I hate it – you’ll love it. I’m just going to start a box of all the tea I don’t like and send it to you once I’ve collected a few…..

Nxtdoor

Haha, I’ll do the same. So far we both dislike Kokomo green though so I wonder who’s getting that one!

Dexter

I’m still pondering that one, I haven’t given up on it…. just got distracted by other teas.

It’s mate, it’s full of roasty – toasty goodness. Have a little something coffee esque about it. It’s plain, it’s simple – it’s a great base to add a bunch of other stuff to it – hazelnut syrup is amazing. It’s everything I love – sad to see it go…..
