Yerba Mate Brands The Good and the Bad
Well like all things you have the really good brands of the tea and you got the stuff that taste awful hahha. Today I will actually be picking up 3 pounds of Yerba. Let me tell you a few brands to stay clear of. Rosamonte, it's absolutely awful this one had a real bad flavor to it. Cruz De Malta is not bad for the price, its around 4 to 6 dollars US for a nice big bag, its got a nice flavor but its still not the best. Amanda is a brand that I do recommend it's right there with the Cruz De Malta but I was never a huge fan of it. The brand I recommend and the most popular brand throughout the world is Taraguay, its got a superb taste to it. It's a great deal if you can get a hold of some. I recommend it, a friend of mine who has been drinking Yerba for over 50 years will only drink this brand. I fluctuate between this and the Cruz De Malta. I will cover my experience with drinking flavored Yerba in the next post.
I recommend if you have a chance to check out the Organic its got a awesome taste to it, I will include some pics of it in here.
