Back on the mate train… we’ll see how long this lasts. Haha.
This blend’s good because the black tea takes the edge off of the smokey note in the mate and amplifies the caffeine content of the brew, which is exactly what this wretched coffee addict wants in a breakfast tea. I really appreciate the non-jittery aspect of mate— I just wish I liked the flavor more. The black tea definitely makes this one drinkable for me.

I haven’t had this in ages. Thanks for the romp down memory lane!

I didn’t know Morning Thunder was a black tea/Yerba Mate blend! I see it at my grocery and always assumed it was just straight black tea. I’ll have to give this a try!

This is a blend that always seems to find its way back into my collection. I’ll get a box, drink two or three cups of it, forget how much I like it and ignore it for a few months, and then cycle back to it.

I forgot about this tea! I’ve put it on my shopping list. :)

Hello! I love literature, politics, handmade jewelry, all things purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorites: Black, oolong, rooibos, genmaicha. Vanilla, chocolate, fruity, nutty, bready, roasted, dessert-inspired flavors. Floral greens. Kombucha.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends. I’m also also iffy about mate and herbal teas, although there are a few that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.
