’Here’s Hoping’ traveling teabox Round #2 // Tea #38
A nice standard yerba mate, even though the leaves look tiny. I’m not sure if they should be this small or if they have just been crushed. The flavor is your typical sweet, earthy yerba mate. The second steep was TOUGH. It tasted like I was drinking vitamins. Must mean it’s a healthy cup. I like adagio’s yerba mate base. It should be used in more blends! I think that this one gets a lower rating just because so many aren’t accustomed to yerba mate and this one is stronger flavored. You certainly can’t boil it.
Steep #1 // water cooled 35 min // 3 min
Steep#2 // water cooled 20 min // 3-4 min

I like a good yerba mate. It tastes like it’s good for me in the best possible way.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
