Actually, I have yet to order directly from them...but I really appreciate some of their blends. They make me seem like God to my Teavana-addicted friends.
This particular blend, though...it's kind of expensive everywhere when you figure that a pound of regular roasted yerba mate from a place like Guayaki is like, $12. The MatéChino just isn't different enough from plain roasted yerba to have me justify that price.
I might just try that Dragonwater blend, though. It's identical to SpecialTea's Maté Tiramisu, which one SpecialTea's reviewer says is near indistinguishable from the MatéChino. Dragonwater has it at $16.25 per pound, compared to SpecialTea's $25.10. (Which is like 2 lbs worth at Dragonwater...$28.)
