I ordered this at the Bend location last Thanksgiving break, and it was so amazing (yerba mate energy + spicy chai = YES PLEASE) I bought a few ounces to take home with me to Chicago. WELL, that only lasted a week because I drank it every day and a mug of this will run you a whole Tbsp. So then I proceeded to tell my husband for about the next 9 months how much I missed this tea…and he got me 20 oz for my birthday! Good man. I now have a HUGE bag of this tea, and it’s a perfect warming, spicy chai for fall and winter.

Make sure to brew it WITH warm milk, as instructed. I tried adding milk in after, as I do with many black teas, and found that it ended up bitter. I think brewing it with the milk mellows it out a bit.

Color: the drink starts off a light brown and turns green if it sits for awhile (from the mate).

Flavors: Anise, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Ginger

I became a tea convert in 2009, and have been overfilling my cupboards with tea ever since. I’m mostly a fan of flavored blacks and matés, but also enjoy some of their lighter cousins!

My tea cupboard is way too full. I’ve never done a tea swap yet, so message me (and tell me how the Steepster swaps work)—I’m game!
