There's something immensely comforting to me about the smell of this tea bag, even though I've never tried it before. It reminds me of the modern language building at Franklin and Marshall College, Keiper hall, a place I spent a lot of time as a kid. It also reminds me a little of Celestial Seasonings' Tension Tamer....

Served at Velvet Sky bakery in Jenkintown.

I haven't had many Yerba Mate-based "chai" blends, so I don't have much to compare this to.

Cinnamon is the dominant tone in the aroma, which I don't like. I actually prefer masala chai without any cinnamon, but whether or not there is cinnamon, I prefer other spices, e...

Style: Flavored Yerba Maté – Region: Paraguay

22 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5

But the amount of sweetener in this is absolutely over the top...far mo...

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5

A very smooth blend, but bordering on bland. I can see this as being vaguely coffee-like only in the most remote sense: the flavor is very mellow and smooth, unlike coffee.

I notice rooibos and cocoa, and a little bit of spice...it suggests cinnamon even though I don't see that listed in the ingredient list. Light...

Style: Flavored Yerba Maté – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5

The aroma is dominantly cinnamon, and there's also a strong suggestion of vanilla, which I suspect is from the mate. Creamy overall character. Not much complexity, especially given how many ingredients there are. This blend contains appreciable amounts of red rooibos, but I can't find it in the aroma. I also cannot...
