6 Tasting Notes
wonderful classic. I have had a million cups of this in the last few years. It’s my favorite yerba so far. i’m looking for something different just for fun. Does anyone know of any particularly exciting yerba concoctions?
side note: never buy the tea bags of this brand unless you don’t mind chunks in the water (they break and are sealed poorly)
If you like maté hot, try mixing green and a dark roast. I buy mine from The Maté Factor (www.matefactor.com) because it has a more fresh taste. I use the bags more often and theirs do not break open. I steep 2 green, 2 roasted, and 2 mocha mint bags for about 3-4 minutes for a 32 oz brew – add a little honey and cream and it’s great. I drink at least one cup of this a day. As far as a cold drink goes, prepare the loose green maté like you normally would (I prefer cold steeping it as it makes a stronger brew) and add juice concentrate (preferably organic peach, papaya or lemon) and a little honey or stevia to offset the sweetener in the concentrate. Make a gallon and see how long it stays in the fridge! Not for long – Enjoy!
