I can’t believe I’m the first to rate this one. Thank you Rachel for sending me this one. I’m a huge fan of roasted mate. I like the roasted flavor on this one. The leaf is quite small almost like dust rather than full leaf. There’s not just mint in this one but full mint sprigs, which adds a nice touch to the roast flavor of the mate. However in steeping this one a few time I have yet to pick up any berry flavor to this one. I’ve even let it steep for ten minutes and still can’t pick up the Elderberry. Still this one is tasty. I would love to try more from handmade but unfortunately monthly subscriptions are not in the buget.
Yerbaberry Mint starts with a base of roasted yerba mate from Brazil. The roasting process brings out a chocolatey sweetness along with a tobacco-like aftertaste. The elderberries play an important backup role by adding subtle but sweet blueberry/raisin-like notes. The organic chocolate mint ties the blend together, adding the classic cooling sensation along with the sweet chocolate hints that fold into yerba mate, bringing the blend full circle. This makes an excellent iced tea!
