From urbane tea company

Looking for an all natural Chai with an extra kick? Look no further. Chai Mate is a blend of Brazilian mate, black tea, and rich spices. The kick comes from the caffeine content of mate, sometimes called matteine, which is generally higher than that of black tea. Mate has been a staple beverage throughout Brazil since before the arrival of the first Europeans. Early natives harvested, and later cultivated Matte, in some cases developing rituals for its consumption. Nowadays, Mate is normally consumed in a special hollow gourd sipped through a stainless steel straw, frequently elaborately decorated and quite beautiful, passed from person to person. INGREDIENTS: Roasted mate, black tea, chopped and powdered ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, natural flavors.

I’ve had this for as long as I’ve had the rooibos and black tea chais that came in this present from my mother, but been drinking it less because I didn’t think I wanted the stimulation of mate. Well, now that I have “donated” the black tea version to my department and am almost done the delicious rooibos chai I am turning my attention to this.

Aaaaaannnnd it’s pretty good, actually. I still don’t need the stimulation, but I enjoy the taste of this enough to drink it anyway. The cinnamon isn’t overblown in this version of their chai- and it actually does taste a bit like a chai I’ve had at an Indian restaurant near me. I’m digging the fennel and anise in this. And for those who don’t like mate, but DO like how it makes them zip, the mate is definitely taking a backseat to the spices here. I don’t know how common mate chais are, but this is a good one so worth giving this little startup tea company some business, I’m thinking.

Alas, drinking chai has failed to make it feel more like winter here in perpetually-hot Houston.
