I went to Down to Earth to look for a roasted yerba mate, and I found this. Used a generous tablespoon to go with about 10-12 oz of water (I think I’m still dusting mate sediment off of my work table). What I like about this is that it steeped for a good long while, but it never gave me that BLEH flavor that overbrewed black coffee has. The color is rich and dark. Goes well with Stevia, but I’m going to try a little less mate next time to see if I can ferret out the actual taste of the herb…

Flavors: Nutty, Roasted

An oolong monster who lives in a remote island chain where it is difficult to obtain loose leaf tea. She used to eschew the beverage, but she now considers herself a devotee of fine leaf water. You can talk to the monster—she doesn’t bite (only slurps).
