I actually tried this first as a sample with a previous order, and did not like it as much at the time. I decided to try it again as my next main batch and I have been enjoying it. I drink it in the morning and feel relaxed and gives me the taste and flavor I look for in mate. It is a nice smooth balance between the flavor profiles you get in other brands. In the past I have mixed up to three brands into a "master" mix to get variety in flavor over time, and this tastes like one of my mix.
