I have never ever tried any Mate type teas before…
1st smell steeped. Truthfully the smell was a bit off putting. It smelled really grassy. And not even a sweet grassy smell.
1st taste: Not bad really. It almost tastes like it has mint in it….might be the lemongrass. I know that might sound weird, but lemongrass has some of the fresh, reviving taste to it that mint does to me, so that is probably why I am associating the two. Note: Because I have never had a Mate tea before, I decided to go lower then the recommended temp (Teavana’s recommended temp is 208.) I went with the ‘French Press’ setting on my kettle, 200. I think next time I will try it at Boiling, see how it handles. I suspect I might like it better.

The flavor profile is amazing. It is a great tea served both hot and cold, I would suggest it to anyone who wants that energy boost in the morning.

it has the classic coconut-lemon combination, enhanced with lots of ginger and sweetened with Caribbean fruits like mango and pineapple.

This tea is fantastically refreshing when served cold, and throat-soothing served warm. From personal experience, I find this this tea is hard to over-steep! It seems to progressively taste better the longer you steep it. So if you’re the kind of person who never reads/follows brewing instructions, then this will be a great tea for you! Hahaha

I’m unclear how I feel about this tea… On it’s own, I wasn’t really a fan. I found it a bit tart and even bitter (which is hard to do with a Mate). However, one of my favourite iced teas is Caribbean Calypso blended with Citrus Lavender Sage. When I’m looking for a fruity kick of energy, this is what I order. I had planned on buying the tea and bringing it home, but never did because I don’t seem to like it on it’s own? I finished the cup, but it isn’t something I would put effort in to purchasing and bringing home. Perhaps this confirms my “I don’t love tea with coconut in them” theory?

This is my go-to morning tea; just purchased a pound of it for myself while it was on sale. This tea is really stellar when brewed in a traditional gourd. Leaving it in the gourd really brings out the ginger flavour which can get a bit… I dunno it’s just not quite there when steeping it like tea (as maté is not technically tea). It also has a wonderful natural sweetness, and the lemongrass is refreshing. Makes a fantastic iced tea. Couple of cups of this keeps me going all day.
