Sound Sparkling Yerba Mate

Sound Sparkling Yerba Mate

I called this house meeting because I believe someone has been snooping around my room when I’m not home. My reasoning for this is that someone has obviously been reading my dream journal and then selling the information to the various companies that it would benefit. I mean how else would anyone know that perhaps the product I want most in life to exist is a hibiscus yerba mate seltzer? Yet here I sit with a bottle of Sound in front of me. Yes, I know they mean for it to be more of a sparkling tea, but in my world if it’s carbonated with no sugar, it’s a seltzer. I also see that they have somehow improved on my dreams and added lime and lemon to the mix. If I weren’t so furious that one of you has been going through my things I could weep with happiness. This is one of the most wonderful tasting things I have ever experienced. It’s a mixture of yerba mate, white tea and guayusa that has some hibiscus flowers brewed with it. The whole thing tastes like a slightly floral yerba mate with just a twist of citrus. It’s obvious that if any company had made it this far into such a wonderful product they would knock it down a few pegs by adding some sugar, or…ick…stevia. Here it sits though, completely unsweetened, just like I always dreamed. You two have a lot of explaining and apologizing to do, especially since you are both cats and I don’t know how you even read my journal.

Pacific Simply Mate Yerba Mate

Pacific Simply Mate Yerba Mate

This might be my first yerba mate and I don't know what to think. I'm unaccustomed to the flavor and don't really know how to describe it. For those who haven't had it, I'll do my best as a virgin myself. Let's start off by stating that this is straight yerba mate without any additional fruits or whatever, just a little sugar and citric acid. It tastes like a bitter green tea, but smaller. Does smaller make sense? Green tea has a bold, present bitterness. This has a smaller taste and a smaller bitterness. I don't know if I'd say "less" because it just seems less present. It has a light citrus taste, but that could be because of the citric acid. It's very lightly sweetened and one kid said that he doesn't like unsweetened tea when he drank it. After a couple sips, you can tell that there is a tiny bit of sugar in it.

I don't like it too much, but I'm not going to penalize Pacific for that. That's on me and me alone. One person that likes and knows yerba mate said that it was good and he'd drink it again.

I know that it might be hard to take this review as helpful, but it's a new taste. If you like a nice, bitter green tea and are looking for something different, give this a try. It could be your new thing.
