Okay…so…Yerba Mate. I don’t want to say I don’t like Yerba Mate…but there hasn’t been many out there that I would run out a buy. I’m not saying that I would by this one in bulk either BUT…this is a nice cup of Yerba Mate! No funky taste or aftertaste or aroma! That’s always a plus in my book! It tastes like a paler herbal so it’s not overly flavorful. Based on my personal search for a yerba mate…this has to be one of the better ones to fit my palate so far.
We’re not going to lie to you – no one it seems is indifferent to this tea. You’ll either love it or hate it. Yerba Mate (pronounced yerba mah-tey) is native to South America, where it is drunk as a natural stimulant to increase focus and alertness while helping with detoxing and weight loss. And it does all this, allegedly, without any side effects. So one for our celebrity customers then. (We’re also working on a Mate Vanilla, so that mate haters can get the health benefits without enduring the taste.)
