I am not a yerba mate expert so I can’t speak to whether this tastes authentic. I’m always on the lookout for coffee substitutes so I thought I’d give this sample a try (with trepidation, some Internet reviews have described yerba mate as tasting like cigarettes!) I was pleasantly surprised, to me it tasted like green tea accompanied by the smell of freshly cut grass. There was a hint of honey to the taste as well. Looking forward to buying a box and adding it to my caffeine arsenal!
Flavors: Cut grass, Honey
