drank Yerba Mate by Samovar
330 tasting notes

I got this from swapping teas with AmazonV. I had lost this in my house, and finally found it to brew it. My only experience with mate was in a Celestial Seasoning blend. It was from 2004 I think, they had a line of flavored mate. My favorite was the Island Spice, what a shame they cut it. So from that, I thought mate was awesome! I also have had it in blends, so I thought it must be good.

So the dry leaf smell just didn’t seem appealing. It is earthy! I like my cheese earthy, not the tea I drink though. It came out beautiful green. The taste? Um…just not me. I prefer it blended. I took one sip, and that was enough! I can’t rate it since it’s just mate I don’t like. I had another brand I wasn’t much a fan of either.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
