From Mateina

This is a big deal! That blend combines the bittersweet taste of hibiscus with the sweet flavour wild Canadian berries. All the potency of Yerba Mate in an infusion that recalls the Canadian boreal forest.

A blend of mate, hibiscus flower, elderberry, peppermint and organic blueberry and raspberry flavours.

Montreal Tea Festival – Tea #14

This was the second blend that Mateina was sampling at the festival – and it’s actually the one in their line up that I had sort of expected to like the most so I was excited to try it. I’m not sure if it’s because I thought I’d like it (so my expectations were higher) or not, but I didn’t find this flavour very good. I mean, it did taste distinctly like mate in the same way that the menta did – smooth but lightly smoky grassy/herbaceous taste with some minerality. It even had a hint of mint to it as well – there is actually mint in this blend too. However, berry or hibiscus!? Nah.

The sample did have a slight pinkish tint to it, not as intense/robust as hibiscus often is but enough present to know that it was in the blend. I just didn’t taste any tartness/berry at all though, so I honestly can’t say it was well executed. I’m glad I got a chance to try it – I may have blind bought this one otherwise and I think I’d have been disappointed if I had…
