This is one of the samples Bird & Blend sent me in my last order. A yerba mate based infusion, which I´m normally not such a fan of, aromatised with lemon and ginger…to give me an energy boost, not this morning in my case, but after lunch. I quite like this infusion, where the grassy bite of the yerba mate is nicely complemented by the citric addition. The ginger touch is subtle, which I can appreciate as well.
Apparently, this tea won a Great Taste Award in UK. The Guild of Fine Food judges said:
‘Lively citric nose that’s encouraging and properly promises what you will get, which is something delicious and stimulating. Mate makes it an original choice in the overcrowded field of lemon-ginger infusions. Excellent to see the quality of the natural ingredients.’ Quite right, I say ;-)
Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Grass, Herbaceous
