I havent tried Teavana's Mate, but have had good luck with Zoomdweebies different Mates, again, as long as these small reputable dealers stay in business! I will keep ordering online as long as they are around!
i know i talk alot about camellia sinensis...but ya.. i got most of my teas and experience from there. They have 500g of yerba mate for 10$, i got THIS close to buying it yesterday but i figured what if i dont like it...thats 1lbs... I have to try it out! I feel, tho, it would be awesome to mix it in some signature blend.
Oh, yes, I would love some Mate tea here. I got something recently for my birthday from Teavana. I never shop there as they are too expensive and try hard to up sale. The tea is a blend of two that they sell, it is Samurai Chai Mate and White Avurvedic Chai in a 50/50 mix. I love the stuff and would be thrilled if Adagio had a version that I could try.
