More thoughts on the tea I logged late yesterday afternoon…couldn’t stop thinking about this tea!! Love love love this. I should have eaten before I had it b/c I wasn’t hungry at all for dinner. Guess that would be good if I were on a diet! I will purchase a box of this as soon as I’m able too. I love the clarity that I felt after drinking it. Also seemed to be a mood elevator. I promise, I drank it and didn’t smoke it;)

I reeeeeealy want to try mate! I’m so intrigued!!!

I owned about 4 kilos at one time, I tried it once, then put it on special. I know it has it’s devotees, but eeerggghh!

I think mental clarity is the most overlooked benefit of tea drinking. Nothing like some good ole’ piece of mind from a nice pot of tea.

@JacquelineM You should! Here’s what my experience had been up to now with mate. Most of the ones I have tried tasted coffeeish,I think because it’s roasted mate and that is not what I’m going for when I order a cup of tea:) So, when I tried this sample I was pleasantly surprised. I think I discovered the difference that this one makes- the mate is unroasted hence the non coffee flavor. Works for me! :)

rabbysmom

Of course I’m not expert, so the roasted/not roasted bit is just my uneducated guess.

Tried hotter water today, and the taste was still smooth and delicious. However, it’s mostly a strong mate taste with just a hint of fruit despite the huge chunks of dried fruit in the tea, and I’m still not getting much of the spice flavor, though there is a slight taste of minerality.

This is a warm fuzzy feeling tea. I picked it up because I loved the sound of pineapples in tea – very delicious – nothing too special but great for a rainy day of all day tea sipping awesomeness! :D

I chose this tea as one of my free samples with my Mighty Leaf order. I was hoping to find a new mate. I did NOT however read too deeply into the description (bought the tea by its tea bag, if you will) because if I read “rose petals” and especially “licorice” I can assure I would have avoided this tea all together. However, even with my distaste for two of the main ingredients, I tried it and was pleasantly surprised.

The tea itself smells like it is heavily spiced before and after brewing. This smell continues when drinking it, the aroma is almost overpowering, not off-putting, but strong. However, when actually drinking it, the spices along with the licorice, pineapple, rose petals and mate all blend together so that nothing is overpowering, but smooth and delicious.

I drank it hot with no sugar. I will try and resteep the bag, as Mighty Leaf teas can usually be resteeped. I feel that sugar can only make this better, but I am curious to see how much better.

This is my first maté tea. One of my good friends gave me a couple bags of it. I want to like it. At first taste I enjoy it, but the after taste has a fruity-minty flavor. As a person who doesn’t care for fruity teas, this is quite unpleasant. If you like minty fruit, this is a tea for you.

The teabags smell like an odd but inviting combination of mint, spice and fruitiness. The flavour is light and surpringly I’m picking up a bit of a licorice tang, or at least it atstes that way to me. The woody/vegetale flavour of the mate is only in the background, though I wouldn’t mind if it were a little bit stronger – maybe I’ll steep it a bit longer next time, though I’m hesitant to up the steeping temperature as mate can scald just like green tea.

This tea is a wonderful combination of “stuff”…it smells like a spicy potpourri and, admittedly, I have kept the used bag, dried it out and used it as such. :)

I am not a black licorice lover, but had I not read the flavoring on the box I would not have realized this tea had it. The tea has such a pleasant spicy, slightly sweet taste with just a hint of mint that it really doesn’t need a sweetener.

This is one of the first teas that I fell in love with and it still brings me much joy! :)

Buying this tomorrow at Tea Desire!

They did not have this in stock, so upset, and they only sell the boxes of these teas, and for an exorbitant price!!

This is my first Mate tea but I was pretty surprised. It was very smooth. The aftertaste was a bit shocking though. I found it to be a bit spicy; or rather spicier than I expected. All in all, not a bad tea.

WOW! I LOVED THIS TEA! First off I have to say that I HATE licorice, so don’t let this discourage you from giving this tea a try. I didn’t try it for a long time, because I thought it was going to taste like Chai, which is usually TOO spicy for my taste. WRONG. It looks beautiful, smells FANTASTIC, tastes wonderful! I think this is now one of my favorites!
It’s a lot fruity, a just a little spicy, just a great blend of flavors with a little caffeine kick.
