A review of Yerba Mate by Badia Spices, Inc.

Company: Badia Spices, Inc
Tea Name: Yerba Mate
Tea Type/Varietal: herbal
Region: South America
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: dark brown
Leaf Characteristics:


1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

This cup of tea is steeped for five minutes, resulting with a strong pungent flavor and a fresh aroma that I imagine is full of vitamins and antioxidants which are all good for this person. It is a good thing; I think that I am learning to like Yerba Mate. As I recall an earlier review where I could not discern anything of the then similarly tea.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

This tea’s second steep is not as pungent as first cup of tea but it does still make for a good cup of tea.

200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
