Review of Morning Thunder

4 of 102 of 52 of 540 of 100

I've known of this blend for years, but never tried it until today.

It was a bit of a disappointment. The black tea does seem to convey more strength of flavor and body, and the mate a certain sweetness. But I got the impression that the Yerba mate used in this blend was higher quality than the black tea.

The aroma of the brewed cup had some of the pleasing aromas characteristic of high-quality dark-roast yerba mate, but it had none of the characteristics I associate with higher-quality black tea.

It also had a high amount of astringency, more than typical for a black tea and much more than I associate with yerba mate, which tends to taste very smooth to me.
