I had a hankering for something tart after having some more sweet and floral teas! It’s a bit late to be having maté, but it’s the weekend so oh well.
For some reason this came out a bit bitter, possibly because I used quite a lot of leaf. It’s also quite sweet, maybe from the apple pomace or the blackberry leaves?
It mostly tastes of lemon, with a bit of tartness up front and then sweetness at the end. There’s also apple and a minty flavor, although there’s no mint in the blend, as well as a touch of strawberry.
Overall, I do actually like it, but the bitterness is hard to ignore. I would prefer it to be less sweet as well.
The maté blends seem to be the ones I like best from David’s.
