Pretty strong lemon myrtle taste. I often find yerba maté to be an unappealing flavor but here the unfavorable earthy, alkaloid-y notes were well masked. There’s green tea in this blend too but I’m not sure what its role is.
While drinking this, I enjoyed it but an hour later I’m finding myself on edge and annoyed with family talking which normally doesn’t bother me. This is an effect yerba maté has on me, whether due to the amount of caffeine and/or other chemicals I’m not sure. Nervous, aggressive energy that makes me want to wrestle and throw shit.
I’ve drunk yerba maté before powerlifting, felling trees and bike riding but no amount of physical activity ever seems to take off the edge.

(Lotta buts here, too.)
