I love the jitters-free caffeine boost from mate, but I have to really be in the mood for mate in order to make myself a cup. And I’m only in the mood for it like, once a year.
I like this one better than the Guayaki kind. It has a milder flavor.
But yeah, it still tastes like grass.

Light, earthy/grassy flavors, even after a long steep. I love this tea plain. It’s not bitter or acidic and satisfies that craving for warm and savory.

Flavors: Earth, Grass

Boiling 8 min or more

Also, I really shouldn’t drink more than a cup or two at work if I want to have any sort of focus.

I got this tea from Trader Joe’s the last time I was there. I actually don’t like plain mate on its own so I won’t bother to rate this for now. I like the way it makes me feel but it seems so bitter, even after sugar is added. I got this hoping I would find some other stuff to mix it with to make it more palatable. I am thinking licorice might be a good place to start because it is on the sweet side…


I know what you mean. Mate by itself is not the nicest taste.


Pau d’arco is another thing I can’t really drink alone… so foul, lol

The plain mates seem to go well with chocolate teas quite well. I also use chocolate stevia drops with my plain mates.


I am from Argentina. You described yerba mate very well!!! It’s bitter but it also makes you feel well. I suggest you try it with slices of orange peel and honey. Also you can try it with ginger, it’s great for digestion and for the throat.

Instant mood booster. I always drink it with milk and honey or sugar.
