So what do you get when you desperately need the caffeine of a Yerba Mate/Guayusa but have extreme indecision about what you want to drink? A bad idea, that’s what.
The other night I mixed 1g of every single Mate/Guayusa tea on the wall and steeped that up to drink. I definitely do not recommend doing it – but here are the results…
- Strongly fruity; lots of the berry flavours & orange
- From Power Berry and Main Squeeze, respectively
- Sour/sweet finish
- Really earthy
- Coffee notes from Jumpy Monkey were REALLY strong and deeply clashed
- And the nuttyness from several of the teas also popped up throughout
It definitely could have tasted a million times worse – but again, it wasn’t good either. Certainly helped on a caffeine level, though…
Friendly reminder that I’m not currently numerically rating DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently seasonally employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
