Name: Citrus Mate
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $2 for a ten cup sample
First Impressions:Very sweet smelling, a variety of citrus flavors
My first flavored “mate” tea, I had high expectations for Citrus Mate as citrus teas have typically been among my favorites(Citron Green). having said that, I was a little disappointed in citrus mate. It isn’t bad, but the citrus flavor is much weaker than expected. The typical dark, earthy tones of mate are a little overpowering. I guess it has more to do with my expectations, but it still just isn’t as good as I was expecting. Having complained about that enough, it is a decent tea, especially if you are a mate fan. The citrus does take some of the edge off of the mate flavor, just not enough for me!
