A full rosebud! I’ve seen rose petals but never a full rose bud. Whenever I open the container I feel like I find something new to look at. it smells pretty good too. Even for a Mate purist this is pretty good. I am not a purist by any means as I love to try as many teas as possible but for people who are I think this will still wet their palette.

Just picked this one up yesterday on the suggestion of the girl in the store. I told her I wanted a fruity mate that would be good hot or cold, and she suggested this one.
The smell is incredible. Very tart smelling, with a strong lemony scent.
Steeped it hot, and it definitely was tart! I may try it again in the future with less leaf but I’d always found Teavana’s teas to need about a 1/2 tsp more than suggested (at least). As it was, I added some sugar (at the office without agave) and it was nice. Kind of reminded me of a tastier NeoCitran? That kind of lemony flavour, with raspberry notes. Not bad, but probably won’t re-buy.

The main appeal I saw in this tea was the caffeine content. I was having a hard time getting going in the morning, and I don’t like the taste of coffee. It can be a little bitter if steeped for too long.

This is the first Mate that I’ve tried, and I wasn’t very impressed. The lemon overpowered the raspberry to the point where it just tasted like lemon tea. While the flavor was pleasant, I would have preferred it to have more of a balance.

Next time I will try it iced and see how that goes, but as far as this taste goes, I wasn’t overly impressed.

We were at the mall the other day and my husband suggested trying Teavana. Not a good experience, sad to say. The shop girl kept trying to push us into buying a pound of tea, even after we decided to pass. Feeling pressured to buy something, I picked out some of this raspberry yerba mate. Was already feeling not so good about the transaction and the price, but figured the tea would be, at the least, a drinkable pick-me-up.

When I got home and opened the bag, the unpleasant medicine-y, “cough drop” smell was overwhelming. I literally can not find ANY mate in there, just red chunks and some slivers of lemongrass. I assumed the tea had just settled and the shopgirl missed scooping any into the bag, but it looks like other reviewers have had the same issue.

This tea is NOT as advertised. No bright, tart, fruity raspberry. No sour, citrusy lemon. No herbal, grassy mate. Hot, it tastes like syrupy, artificial hibiscus. Iced isn’t much better. Barely tolerable with sugar. No mate uplift. I even tried adding a scoop of my precious discontinued Rishi lemongrass mate to the second pot to see if that would balance it, and all I did was waste my lemongrass mate.

I was extremely disappointed in this tea.

ETA: If you add some good mate and lots of sugar, and let the pitcher sit out on the counter for a half hour, some of the hibicus/rose mellows out and it becomes drinkable. As far as sugary drinks go, Koolaid is slightly better and a lot cheaper.

Really lovely. I’m not a big fan of any hot liquid that isn’t improved by milk but this is a gorgeous bedtime tea. Raspberry overpowers the lemons. The colour is beautiful in a glass teapot.

I like this as an iced tea in the morning for a little caffeine. I find that it definitely requires sweetener as the lemon and raspberry flavors are quite tart. I usually use a little stevia and that makes it nice and smooth.

I LOVE this tea!! It is tart and I add some German Rock Sugar. It gets you right in the back of the teeth!! I LOVE the smell and the color is gorgeous. One of my favorite morning teas when I need a kick in the pants.

I originally bought this mate because teaopia discontinued their peach mate, which was my boyfriend’s favorite. This has become our new favorite tea, it is so delicious. Raspberry takes the forefront and the lemon kind of lingers in the background. This is perfect for people who don’t really enjoy the taste of mate, such as myself, I find it rather chalky and unpleasant. A great tea to have for mate beginners, or someone desiring a pleasant change.

It’s my all favorite tea ever!
I bought it this summer in USA and I’m sad to have to wait for buying it again! ( at least I can buy it on the web)
It’s a mate, super fruity,
