Very interesting take on yerba mate. I have always associated a very vibrant bitter taste with yerba mate, yet this blend really tones the bitterness down and allows for the licorice to shine through, giving this tea a very sweet flavor. I added no sugar at all to this tea, yet it feels like I did, with the first sip. The licorice overpowers the mate flavor at first allowing the sweetness to hit the palate first, and this is then followed by the earthy grassy tobacco and wood taste I have associated with yerba mate. Overall, an excellent tea if you like sweet teas. I probably won’t get any more of this because I don’t care for this intense of sweetness, but I can definitely recommend it to any who do like that flavor! Last note I have about this tea is the amount of caffiene. I was almost falling asleep, but this tea jolted me up. It works fast.
