drank Yerba Mate by Harney & Sons
101 tasting notes

I love plain yerba mate tisanes, and this brand is no different.

The leaves are all broken into tiny pieces, like the picture shows. They are very thin and brittle.

I’ve never learned how to make yerba mate the traditional way, so I just make this like I would any other herbal tisane. I steep the leaves western style in near-boiling water for six minutes.

The liquor comes out strong and somewhat spicy. The flavors remind me of hay or dried grass mixed with spices. It is hard to describe but it tastes wonderful, in my opinion.

Flavors: Grass, Hot Hay, Spicy

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 6 g 16 OZ / 473 ML

Husband and father. Librarian. Soccer fan.

My tea habits generally depend on my mood and the season but, in general, my preferred teas are black teas, especially those grown in Sri Lanka and India. I will occasionally drink other types, though.

Unless noted in my review, I brew my tea western style and do not use additives (milk/cream, sugar, etc.).

I am definitely not an expert when it comes to tea, so I apologize if my reviews differ from the experiences you’ve had with any of the teas I have logged.

Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have a favorite that I have to try! :)
