THe flavor from this yerba is something else. I get a mix of spices, peanut butter, and the earthiness of a Cruz. Unlike Cruz de Mata, the flavor is short-medium, and when it is washed, it's not a tasty washed flavor. I actually got into the habit of mixing Cabral in (great taste when it's washed). Though, all this might be because it is a strong and delicious flavor, to begin with. Other than the flavor, it's very relaxing and allows me to get a lot of reading done.
