I was hoping some off the real bitter bite of mate would be covered somewhat by the added ingredients- but it still tastes almost exactly as any plain yerba mate- though I do detect a tones of coffee-type-roast taste which is nice.
For me I’ll probably mix it with the Rooibos Earl Grey or the Tulsa Chai to take off some of the edge, otherwise it’s pretty good.
If you are looking for a coffee substitute, then this would probably be the drink for you- but keep in mind the intense bitter bite and that I’ve never tasted coffee so…take it with a pinch of salt, lol.
- loose tea w/ infuser
- 4 sugar cubes
-- recommend mixing it with an herbal chai or herbal earl grey.
