Combining yerba mate with coffee may seem like madness. Can it work?
Right from the packaging it smells like freshly grounded coffee. This smell is still strong after steeping.
The taste is peculiar. At the first steeping there is a great balance between coffee notes and the base yerba mate. No smokiness, no bitterness, just a great balanced taste.
The second steep is more inclined towards yerba mate, but coffee taste is still strong.
The third steep has a lot less coffee, the base yerba mate is much more evident. And since it is not smoked, it seems rather bland.

Bio

I drink tea almost all the time.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
