Well-last night I went to work and brought some Yerba Mate with me and had no other tea to go with it.  I had poured the hot water into my thermos cup and it sat for about 15 minutes to cool (instead of the usual 5 min.) because it got busy.  I then put the tea bag in to steep for about another 10 minutes.  The taste was sooooooooooooooo much better...not bitter and I didn't even have another tea mixed in.  This morning I did the same thing and let the water cool for about 15 minutes and steeped for 10 again.   The tea is actually a light green colour now instead of a darkened green.  Yessss!!!

Me too.  I can't even imagine drinking mate with flavoring added.  I learned to drink it while living in Argentina many years ago, from the little gourd thing, and am happy to have rediscovered it and to find it's a beneficial for me.

If you are new to it, try it plain for a while and you may develop a taste for it.  That was how I learned to drink green tea.

Would mandarin orange flavor be an avoid?  I don't think I'd get it.  It probably has dried orange peel or something in it.

I never purchase anything with 'flavor', anymore!
there seems to be no more trust in me, when it comes to food flavoring of any kind but the flavors I add to my homemade food!

Well I think I've created the perfect chocolate tea!  ha!  I should market this stuff...

- Brew 1 bag of organic yerba mate in 12 oz water
- Pour 6 oz into a cup add 1 tbl sugar free chocolate powder
- Add stevia or stevia-vegi glycerine combo sweetner to taste
     or other compliant sweetener
- Add homemade rice milk to taste

Heat up again if necessary.

man.. it's delicious!

I was thinking as I was making it... why  can't i just be happy with plain tea?  I'm always trying to create something interesting to take away the old yearning for the coffee and cream I used to drink...

then after I got this done, I was like Yah!  this is great! ha...

You most likely could also make this with another strong flavored tea like  Bancha.  But if you have a hard time drinking Yerba, this would be a way to get a great tea into your life.

funkym...great post...I will definitely order my next yerba tea from this company.  I will order the organic loose tea...I fine that loose tea has a bigger "kick" than you get from tea in bags.  I love the stuff...keeps my energy level nice & high.
