drank Mate Lemon by Numi Organic Tea
2221 tasting notes

Had a bag of this on the ferry today. A bag I brought myself. :) The ferry only has Lipton, which I didn’t want to deal with.

I really enjoyed this! Loads of lemony herbal green flavours, a nice kick of caffeine, really easy to make. Definitely something I will have if I’m out and Numi teas are the only thing available.

I tried this blend a few weeks ago and christened it “Mate for Gringos”. It has a good, very accessible flavor—unlike straight mate, which can be bitter and grassy to a fault… I agree that the caffeine content is not at all negligible!

Lol! Sounds like me. :) I haven’t had traditionally prepared mate yet. One day, though. One day. :)
