I have taken it upon myself to review a series of bottled Mate's
that can be bought at whole foods for $1.97 a bottle. The bottle claims to be campaigning for a nobel cause to help the enviroment. To learn more about it you might want to check out their website.www.guayaki.com/restore
No I do not own or represent the company in anyway. I am merely a drinker with an opinion.
I don't have much time on my lap top to be as thorough as I want but, I will attempt to be useful. So I apologize in advanced if this seems rushed.
First to be reviewed.
This mate was obviously minty. but, not too minty. Just the right amount of mint. I would recommend this to mint lovers. The energy boost was almost immediate for me but, it didn't last long and I never noticed a crash. The smell was great and so was the body.
It was good to the last drop. Though, the bottle could be a little bit bigger. Color didn't seem pleasent but, what can you do?
I give this mate an 9.5/10 Worth a shot.
Orginal mate. So the bottle says that it was created with the help of a man who came from the Mate growing region of Argentina. Only problem is that its lightly sweetened. Errrr It was a little too sweet for me but, not enough to be undrinkable or anything. I didn't really feel an energy boost from this one. But, I am quite used to caffeine in my system so I can't be sure of all of you. I prefer my teas to be traditional anyway.
I give this one a 7.5/10
Lastly we have.
This is mate mixed with passion fruit.
I am normally not a fan of fruit blended teas but, this is quite an exception. This has a nice body to it. the smell reminds me of a tropical island. Very rich in fragrance. I don't really feel much of an energy boost from it but, I do feel refreshed. It was the most thirst quenching of the three. Again, this indeed on the sweet side. The bottle sizes are all the same. It could be a bit bigger but, that's not too disheartening.
I give this a 9/10.
I might make a few more reviews before I go to Japan.
