Best Flavored Mates?

Is Philz Coffee like Pete’s Coffee? My sister keeps mentioning it and I am intrigued. Do they have a decent tea selection? I’ll have to stop in next time I’m in town.

The only mate I have had is the My Morning Mate. It’s okay. Not crazy about it but it’s nice to blend with other teas.

Philz is, I believe, halfway between independent and a chain Haha. They brew everything fresh, to order, using looseleaf, though! At first, I went in because I’m boycotting Starbucks for charging for soy again, and I scoffed when I asked them what teas they had and they answered “black, green, and mate”. I was like what kind of answer is that?! But they had vegan cookies and free soy, so I tried it with fresh mint and it blew me away!!! I like Pete’s, too, though; they also do loose leaf and free soy! You’d think Starbucks would learn…..

Pistachio Lime Mate from Fusion is one of my favorite teas ever! They certainly have enough flavor in that one! Fusion also has a Raspberry Chocolate. I also just had Della Terra’s Chocolate Mate yesterday and that one is pretty good. I’m sorry if anyone else has already mentioned these… I didn’t have time to read the other replies.

That first lime one sounds delicious!!!

Just to add something I just remembered, if where you live there are any grocery stores or supermarkets with brazillian products it´s worth taking a look to see if they got any mate. Usually there are those huge 1 kilo or 5 kilos or whatever of mate which is frankly overkill, but often there is flavoured mate in teabags – like Matte Leão Limão (lemon. or pêssego=peach or laranja=orange) and a few others. look for words Mate (or misspelled Matte) or Chimarrão. It´s usually pretty cheap and the teabags are sooo convenient.
