A friend of mine, maozed, got me onto yerba mate last winter when she recommended Celestial Seasoning’s Morning Thunder. I was looking for a mate with other energizing ingredients and decided to give Remedy’s a go.
This tea has everything going for it: yerba mate (love that flavor), ginseng (definitely an eye-opener), and green tea (added benefit of getting your mom to stop hassling you about adding anti-oxidants to your diet).
I didn’t get that near-instantaneous awake feeling that I do with black teas – it took a couple of cups. However, I didn’t experience a caffeine crash as I so often do. Bonus!
The overall flavor is as Remedy describes: light and grassy, not loaded with flavorings. Very enjoyable.
