Pretty new to Yerba Mate, however, out of the 4-5 or so that I've tried, this is my least favorite. It has a strong flavor, which isn't an issue. I like strong. But I just don't feel as if it gave me the kick that other ones did. I blended it with a little higher quality one that I'd had and it was better. Also, after you use it once, if you put more water back in, it's almost already clear. Most of the other brands I've tried I can get at least 2-3 refills out of them before they lose their flavor.
