    Smooth and Rich

    This is my second time ordering this product. I make it strong to get a bold super mate taste. Highly recommended. Not bitter. I use it when I have to make a blend for a less satisfactory mate.


    • cold-brew
    • iced
    The perfect blend for chilled Mate! We use Rubia to cold-brew teas in the summer-time, usually leaving it out overnight, without heat, for the most refreshing, quenching iced Mate out there...add lemon and/or mint and this tea is golden.


    • Not bitter
    • excellent quality
    • flavor
    • Price point
    • Limited availabilty
    So, right off the bat, I want to say that this is a smokey mate. Not, like, say Rosemonte Especial, but if you are concerned about the health effects of drinking smoked mate (I think in small amounts it is probably fine), you may want to avoid this.

    However, I think this is overall, a very smooth mate, despite the smokey notes. It isn't bitter at all and doesn't offend the palate. Even new mate drinkers will love this one. It is a great introduction to the world of mate. My one complaint is it can be hard to get ahold of due to the limited production, so get some as soon as you know it is available!

    Note from GoYerbaMate: This yerba is not smoked,( it is organic ), it is stored for two years in small wooded stalls to created that flavor.

    All time favorite

    • Sour
    • Tangy
    • Terere
    • Limited availability
    • No cons for mate itself
    My daily mate and one of the best tasting out there in my opinion. Can be enjoyed hot (how I drank it for years) and its even better terere with a little citrus juice or plain with ice.

    Great Mate!


    Although primarily intended to be drunk as tereré, La Rubia also makes a great drink served hot. Has a very earthy flavor that reminds me of puerh tea. Definitely one I will be drinking regularly!
