drank Green Mate (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
440 tasting notes

This is only my second time having a pure mate, and wow what a different flavour than the first one I tried (Adagio’s). I was dreading this one, since the one I’d had from Adagio had been a very green and unappealing flavour to me. But I’m working on the entire David’s wall so sacrifices must be made.

And I’m so glad that I tried this one! It has redeemed mates for me. I agree with the other tasting note that compares to Genmaicha. There’s a roasted toasted type flavour to this that makes it a pleasant tea to sip while I’m reading all the reviews you guys have posted while I slept. I just finished my cup and I have an aftertaste in my mouth that is like toast and caffeine, but not offensively so (less burnt coffee and more pleasant). I’m very glad I tried this now, and am looking forward to the rest of the mates on the wall!

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
