LOVELOVELOVE!!! It is the Teavana Mate Vana replacement I’ve been looking for. The first visual impression is deceiving. A visual comparison show that this is a lighter, finer cut tea, but all the ingredients are there. The smell is dead on, and brews up wonderfully! I did not follow Adgio’s brewing instructions though (1tsp/cup,150° for 3-5min). I used Teavana’s brewing instructions (1.5-2tsp/cup, 205°F for 5 min). (5 mins @ 205°F)

I ordered this one as a replacement for Teavana’s Mate Vana, but it didn’t meet the standard for me. This blend has no chocolate in it which I realize now is vital to the flavor I’m looking for. Additionally, it has a significant amount of lemongrass in it which Teavana’s Mate Vana does not...or at least not in this high a percentage. As a stand alone tea not comparing it to what I was looking for it is still just okay for me. I’m just not in love with this blend. (A better alternative for Teavana’s Mate Vana is the Mocha Nut Mate. Yum!!)
