Hmmm so this is what roasted Mate is like. Thank you brandy3392 for sending me this. My first and sigh my only specialTeas tea I will be able to try. Brewed some of this getting ready to head in to station. At first kinda has a roasted/cacoaish aroma. This is the base for some of my favorite morning blends. Smells nice. Tastes a bit like toasted almonds…maybe even a little musty like grandma’s attic. I like it though and will probably blend it with other teas.
Mate, Roasted 963
Genuine Argentine Mate. A cultural drink of ancient origins, Mate is often traditionally enjoyed in a Cuia and sipped from a bombilla.
Rich in vitamins, Mate helps to keep its drinkers healthy and energetic. South Americans enjoy this invigorating, caffeine-bearing herbal infusion socially, as a sign of acceptance and friendship.
Recommendations: Use 1 level tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water until first signs of steam (150-160º F); let steep for 7-10 min.
Ingredients: Roasted Mate
