Started my day with a little bit of Matevana! I had just run out of Teavana’s “My Morning Mate” and was left with no other mate blends in my cupboard. Having woken up about 3 hours earlier than planned … I definitely needed a bit of a boost. This just doesn’t satisfy me as much as some of their newer mate blends do. It seems like the flavor is a bit … watered down, even though I had JUST ordered and opened the package. It was still pretty tasty with the addition of some raw honey, but I didn’t find it as satisfying as I used to. Got the job done but wasn’t as flavorful as I recall it being. Maybe I got a bad batch, or maybe I’m just used to different mate blends now.
A deliciously smooth herbal tea that is perfect for coffee lovers. It does contain caffeine, but many people have a different reaction to this stimulant since it is blended with the other natural xanthines found in Mate (theophylline and theobromine). Together they create energy without jitteriness or addictive tendencies. This tea is also a wonderful diet tea, since it curbs hunger. MateVana does contain nuts.
