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.
