Yeah, this one is going to have to stick around too.
I’m finding I prefer roasted mate to normal mate… pretty much… always. The roasted, toasty goodness really makes everything nice.
This tea from 52teas is no exception. The roasted base mate is strong and flavorful, with the sweet, almost bitter dark chocolate flavor coming in nicely afterwards… finishing with a hint of banana? Yes, it definitely seems to be banana at the end.
I think if I ever had to try to lure someone away from coffee, I might start them with this tea. It has a lot of similar characteristics that you would find in a good cup of coffee, and that creaminess that really makes the morning kind of come together. If I could trust myself to boil water in the morning without causing myself serious damage, I might use this instead of my typical cup of Mr. Coffee. I don’t, but that’s besides the point.
