I first tried this mate years and years ago — and I found it at Whole Foods because a friend recommended Yerba Mate, and this was my first experience with it.
It’s good. The flavors match well. It’s nice hot or over ice, and doesn’t really get bitter. Still, that said, if you didn’t have a lot of internal motivation to specifically drink mate, I’d have to say that the same flavors in this blend work as well, or better, with green tea.
