From ESP Emporium

The popular fresh taste of fruity, sweet oranges goes well with the moderately strong, spicy, slightly smoky Mate tea. The strikingly decorated, delicious specialty is a high-grade offer for the rising demand for Mate tea. The well-balanced addition of pleasant licorice gives the necessary sweetness to this fresh and slightly tangy blend. Similarly to black tea, mate tea is stimulating with a short brewing time (5 minutes); this effect diminishes with longer brewing times (10 minutes).

Ingredients: green and roasted Mate tea, licorice roots, orange peels and blossoms, natural flavoring.

Serving Size: 1-2 level tsp. /6oz serving

Brew Temp: 176 degree F

Brew Time: 5 to 10 Minutes

I’ve had an interesting experience with this tea. I actually tried it about a year to a year and a half ago, and I did not like it. Now, I don’t know if it is because the recipe for the blend has changed, or if my palate is just more accepting of yerba mate now… but, I’m actually enjoying it this evening. I kind of think it’s because I’m acquiring a taste for yerba mate, although the licorice note in this tea is stronger than I remember, and the earthiness from the mate is not as apparent as it was previously either… so… I don’t know.

What I do know is that this has a nice orange-y taste, and I love the licorice flavor and how it sits on my palate in the finish. This is lovely.

I’ve had my ups and downs with Mates!
This one changes my mind!!!
I really like this one!

It’s very energizing with lots of true-orange but slight hints of licorice and floral notes…WOW! Mate Success! Woot! Woot!

I actually got this from House of Tea but am too lazy/busy to upload a new profile…
but the description matches more or less.
The orange zest really pops out in this one, as does the spiciness. I’m not sure I like it- which sucks because I assumed I would and now have 100g! does anyone want to swap?
The licorice is throwing me off, that odd sweetness that reminds me of medicinal tea… oh… and it’s 50% roasted mate so it has less maltine in it. Not that it matters. Just puttin it out there in case anyone wants a trade!


Ohh ooh meee! I wanna try it!


Yay!!! are you in TO or Mississauga anytime soon? otherwise I’ll mail it!


We’ll be in Mississauga early tomorrow, other than that, no idea. Ah Etobicoke. You are in the middle of so many things XD


oh drats, I’ll be in TO til late tomorrow… Black Keys, yeah!!!


With the upcoming trip (we leave three weeks from Monday) our plans are as follows:
Stay home
Stay home
Scrounge up the change for a pizza
Stay home
Oh, and stay home XD

So, yeah, no plans for a trip downtown anytime soon. Boo! I will, however, get your package in the mail on the next paycheck!

I like it better than most mate I have had, didn’t get much orange, but i got a green tea flavor as opposed to the overpowering flavor i usually get from mate.

This was a gift from TeaEqualsBliss, Thank you!

I threw this tea into my french press to make my brother a cup of tea hoping he’d like it. I forgot that 32 ounces of hot tea isn’t an ideal amount for anyone in one sitting so I was able to sample it the first time I brewed it (which I’ve drank multiple times now).
I find this tea to have a strong yerba mate taste but without the strong bitterness. The orange taste is quite a nice addition to this tea. This is a better fruit blended yerb mate, however don’t expect a ‘sweet’ cup when drinking this- it might have a sweetness to it but the yerba mate keeps its integrity with each sip.
