My Cuppa: A good Mate for me!

Thought I’d post another article about a product my friend offered me to sample. This time, I’m trying out Mate Aguante by Greenfield. It’s a tisane, and if you go back a few posts, I had written an article about Mate. Go read it! Oh, and aguante is stamina or energy in Spanish.

Mate Aguante by Greenfield.

I prepared my Mate according to the directions on the packet by infusing the double-chamber bag in a cup of water off the boil for about 5 – 7 minutes. The result was a lemon yellow infusion with a light citrus scent. The taste was lemony with a bit of smokiness. 

A cup of energy!

I noticed from the dampened tea bag that there were bits of citrus rinds mixed in with the Mate.  This explained the citrus aroma and flavour, though the packet did not indicate it was a blend.

I liked it. Much like lemonade, this would be great over ice or even mixed in a cocktail!
