I am such a fan of green tea and green mate. I love how the flavors mix. What is fun with this mix is that there is also a bit of a tropical feel to it with the added strawberries and papaya. This tea had such a nice sweet aroma.
What I always seem to be confused by is what steeping parameters I should use. Green tea and green mate have completely different steeping times. To play it safe- I went with the green tea setting on the Breville One Touch because I wasn’t sure how forgiving the green tea would be if I went with the mate setting I typically use. Poured the sample into the brewing basket and away I went.
My thoughts? I like this blend. It isn’t overpowering and it is very subtle. No one flavor gets in the way or pushes the other around. The green tea has a nice buttery feel that really pairs well with the strawberry and the mate gives a slight roasted flavor that goes well with the papaya. All in all, a nice brew subtle brew. I would love to try this one on ice. With ingredients like strawberry and papaya, I can see this being perfect for these last days of summer!

People often as me if I ever get “Tead-Out” with as much Tea as I drink…oddly, the answer is NO. i never get teaD out! I DO, however, get bored or sometimes just don’t want or care for a certain ingredient in a tea. But there are so many teas I NEVER get bored with tea as a whole.
Perhaps that is why I ‘sat’ on this one for a while. First of all I’m not usually excited about teas with ginger in them. But I do like Ginger in foods. Maybe it’s because I feel many teas that featuring ginger in their list of ingredients tend to over-due it. Regardless…I tried this Lemon Ginger Yerba Mate recently and was pleasantly surprised!
This one was much more lemon than ginger and I am very happy about that. This is lemony with a hint of ginger and tasty and refreshing! It didn’t leave a weird after taste and the overall experience was memorable not only as being a tasty tea/tisane but a tasty flavored Yerba Mate! The flavoring is “just right”!
