This yerba mate is a bit pricey but it smells and tastes great.
Just reading the box makes you believe it will taste luxurious and exotic. Here is what the box says:
“Cardamom plants grow in the monsoon forests of southern India. Known as the “Queen of Spices,” the prized seed pods have been sought after for thousands of years. Belonging to the same family of plants as ginger, cardamom has an intensely aromatic fragrance and a warm, spicy flavour.
Traditionally, the kings of India drank Chai that contained this flavorful spice. With yerba mate as the base for our chaï, we’ve added the best of fresh cardamom and other spices to create a royal cup of tea, pleasant with milk and honey.”
I drank it plain with no milk honey or sugar but It really lived up to my expectation and the description. This is definitely one of my new favorites.
I acquired half a box of this when a co-worker was cleaning out the kitchen at work. I tried to find some more locally but it isn’t available at the local stores so I ordered some more from their web site today. I really don’t want to run out of this one.
