drank Toasted Mate by Adagio Teas
35 tasting notes

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.

Flavors: Bitter, Coffee, Herbaceous, Roasted, Sour, Toasted

Boiling 4 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I am still a very n00b when it comes to tea even though I’ve been drinking herbal tea all my life. I only fell madly in love with it just a few months ago- next thing I know, I have 11 boxes of different teas. (I just counted xD)

I’m Mormon/LDS, so I only drink herbal tea. I drank black tea for a while, but eventually decided to switch back to herbal for religious reasons- though I loved the taste of Traditional British Breakfast, Chai, and Earl Grey (all under the Twinings brand).

Since then, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed finding and tasting different herbal teas- it came be so relaxing or so energizing. I love it!
