drank Rainforest Maté by Mighty Leaf Tea
1908 tasting notes

The teabags smell like an odd but inviting combination of mint, spice and fruitiness. The flavour is light and surpringly I’m picking up a bit of a licorice tang, or at least it atstes that way to me. The woody/vegetale flavour of the mate is only in the background, though I wouldn’t mind if it were a little bit stronger – maybe I’ll steep it a bit longer next time, though I’m hesitant to up the steeping temperature as mate can scald just like green tea.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
