Leaf Type: Yerba Maté
Where to Buy: Fusion Tea Room
The elegance of this blend is simple and sophisticated. Our unsmoked yerba mate infused with the flavor of ripe mangoes. Very smooth that goes down easy. You ‘ll forget you’re actually drinking mate because the astringency and bitterness that so many other brands have isn’t there. Energize your midday over ice. Love it, drink it, share it.
I have to agree with the above description, this is very smooth, it goes down easily! There is no astringency and no bitterness. It is sweet and absolutely delicious. This just may be my favorite Yerba Maté blend yet.
Although I must say that I don’t actually forget that I am sipping on Yerba Maté, because it tastes like Yerba Maté. It does lack the sometimes bitter taste that accompanies a typical smoked Yerba Maté, but beyond that, I can taste the vegetative and earthy qualities of the Maté. It also has that invigorating quality of Yerba Maté. This is a Yerba Maté blend I’d recommend to those who have tried Yerba Maté in the past and found it to be a little off-putting. This blend will change their mind!
The mango tastes sweet. It’s a very vibrant fruit flavor – very authentic and juicy. The fruit melds so beautifully with the vegetal taste of the green Yerba Maté. The vegetative taste is a little more prominent than the earthy quality of the Maté here, and the flavors unite so harmoniously.
As I said before, I’d recommend this to anyone who has tried Yerba Maté in the past and didn’t care for it – this one will change your mind. I’d also recommend this one to the Yerba Maté newbies out there. Heck, I’d recommend this one to anybody – it’s that good!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
