More of Sample Saturday … This comes from IndigoBloom and a big thank you to her for this pick me up! I am dragging today – daughter had to be at work at 8am to record her first on air segment after only being on the job for a week. Its going crazy fast for her. Now if I can only get her confident with her driving so mom here can rest! LOL
This tea is very nice. I did not smell any mango in the dry state but as soon as the water it the leaf the smell of fresh juicy mango hit me in the face like a truck!
This is not a sappy sweet tea at all – a VERY natural mango flavor indeed and I LOVE it!
It does have a slight sweetness to it though – is that the mate maybe?
It has a light, bright, cheery taste to it and a light cleansing mouthfeel.
Oh my how good this would be iced!!!
As a matter of fact I have enough to make one good cup of iced a large cup if I combine what I have left of the dry leaf and use the wet leaf in a re-steep. Oh yeah! :)
Thanks again IndigoBloom!
Yerba Mate Mango
Tropical blend of Brazilian Yerba Mate, natural Mango flavour, and sunflower petals. Yerba Mate has been featured in the past as a weight loss agent, that is said to enhance your metabolism. Most of all, it helps to reduce fatigue and is very energizing. The caffeine in Yerba Mate is sometimes referred to as “Matein”. It is chemically identical to caffeine that you find in tea and coffee. But due to the other components in Yerba Mate, your body reacts more gentle with the Matein. It typically does not create the same side effects such as jitters, stomach upset and heart palpitations that are associated with coffee’s caffeine rush.Yerba Mate has a very distinct earthy flavour. The leaves can be reused for multiple infusions. You can serve it with sugar, honey (dissolved in water), lemon, milk, syrups and more.Yerba Mate is prepared by steeping dry leaves of yerba mate in hot water, rather than in boiling water. The traditional preparation utilizes a gourd (callebasse) and a bombilla (metal straw).
