A strong mate with lots of personality
This mate has a strong, distinctive flavor that I like. I would say that it is a mate for an experienced mate drinker who likes a smoky, pungent, even a bit rough drink. If you like a mild, smooth mate with a little honey, mint, or citrus added, I wouldn't recommend this one. I prepare mine in a semi-traditional manner, using an insulated glass mate, silver bombilla and 175F bottled spring water. My tap water has a metallic taste that does not go well with this mate. I use about 75g/day. The Rosamonte packaging is excellent. It reseals easily, is rigid enough to stand upright on the shelf even when the bag is mostly empty. With some other brands I have to transfer the mate to ceramic canister jar before the bag collapses.
