Yerba Mate Flavoured in a bag?

by JM » Mar 23rd, '08, 10:31

Ok, I was ecstatic about finding Yerba Mate at the local store but hesitated to buy because it's only flavoured and in tea like bags. It's Guayaki brand, which flavour should I try? I've never had Mate before.

I've never tried the stuff teabag style, and haven't heard too much positive about that way of doing it.

However, I have enjoyed Guayaki in loose form.

My first foray into Mate was Celestial Seasoning's Morning Thunder and I still drink it. It's a mix of Mate and Black Tea and has a sort of "mild cup of coffee" type flavor (really hard to describe).

What flavors did they have? I've tried a loose orange one that was pretty good, but prefer the more natural, smoky styles.

They had orange and mint, I'll just have to pick some up next time out. Thanks.

I'm not drinking a lot of mate these days, but I have tried and enjoyed Guayaki Magical Mint Mate and Orange Blossom Mate. Both are good hot and both make a great iced tea as well! I didn't care for the Chai Spice Mate, but I'm particular about how my chai is seasoned...

Guayaki has a chai-spiced mate in bags which is pretty good. The mint one is also quite tasty.

Can you re-steep mate tea bags? I just bought some and found out they are no longer going to carry the product, I might have to buy the remaining stock if I enjoy it.
