I've read on here lots of times about herbal teas and some people recomend Yerba Mate as being really good. I got some and it's pretty bitter and not tasty to me. Do you guys add something to make it taste better or do you enjoy the natural flavor of it? I tried lemon juice but by itself it didn't help much. I hate to throw it out, so any suggestions would be appreciated!
Hey! I've never had Yerba Mate, but a raw resturaunt in my area has Yerba Mate tea on the menu.:
Yerba Mate Latte
A highly stimulating frothy treat with Matteine, which is similar to caffeine, organic yerba mate tisane steeped then blended with coconut oil, dates, hempseeds, almond butter, honey, & a little cacao. sprinkled with nutmeg, ginger & cinnamon
Just a suggestion. Let me know if you try it and like it
Hmm, I posted a comment earlier today and now it's not here?
Anyway, I make yerba mate lattes. I buy an unsmoked yerba, so it may be milder. You can do a search on this site for yerba mate latte and my recipe will come up, as will a few others. Good luck!
Also, could you be steeping it too long?
