This was actually my first mate, so I didn’t have a basis of comparison for it. To date I’m still pretty fond of it. I’ve had better mates (need to review some O_o) but as an introduction and not having an opposition to chicory I found it pleasant. Earthy, mild, pretty good overall blend. A little chocolate, pretty decent kick. Doesn’t taste overly astringent, I’d say as a first mate it’s a pretty good option, especially with a bit of “milk” or sweetener. I agree that there is a bit of a mocha element to this, which works for me. (I’m an addict of most anything bearing naturally occurring caffeine…) I guess it just works overall. Not the best, not the worst. Functional. …can tea just be functional?
