Another of Mateina’s RTD line up…
I liked this one a lot, and I think it’s the most unique/adventurous of the line up. Peach is a fairly commercial flavour, but I was thinking about it and I can’t think of the last time I saw Peach and Passionfruit as a flavour combination – it’s different and twisted enough to stand out among all of the other peach flavoured teas/drinks out there in the RTD world. It’s also completely different than anything that they’re carrying as part of the LLT line up, which I thought was interesting!
I do admittedly think that this flavour tastes the least like yerba mate of the three, but that same flavour profile I was getting from the Lemon Original (earthy, grassy, a little smoke/minerality) is still present here so it’s not totally lost – just softer. The peach is very sweet and juicy; very “peach puree” in terms of vibe. There’s a bit of tang though, and a tropical vibe that leans more into those passionfruit flavours – the combination works together REALLY well.
Everything about this one feels approachable to me, familiar but still kind of fun and innovative, not too sweet or tart, and not abandoning the yerba mate roots/tea base. This is probably my favourite of the three flavours, and I would 100% purchase this one again!
