BT has a regular yerba mate and this, which is a dark roast version. I thought this would be a great alternative for coffee but thats not quite the case. Its has roasted notes of grain but more herbal tasting, nothing like the earthy, chocolate-y sweetness of coffee.

Initially I tried this unsweetened but found the regular flavour much too herbal-y and medicinal, so added a tsp of honey, and all was good.

Caffeine-wise it seemed to provide a bit of alertness that lasted for a while, rather than the up and down crash of coffee.

This is organic as well and comes in an unbleached tea bag.

Flavors: Grain, Roasted Barley, Toasted

200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
