    We were given three sample bottled cold teas. Very nice, small amount of cane sugar but water is sweet anyway ...

    Gonna make a jug of tea later to cool. What? Maybe just green and zest ... or fresh ginger root peelings ...

    I buy my pure matcha from a German drugstore because it is inexpensive.
    Then I drink matcha (2%), green tea and herbal tea varieties from Pukkha and Yogi brands.
    I like ginseng, tulsi, ginger and adore Pukkha's "Three Licorice" as a sort of after-dinner dessert.

    I drink Twinnings chamomile snore-EZ, English breakfast tea, early grey, green tea, lapsang souchong, fresh mint tea from mint I grow on the balcony, and sometimes a bit of yerba mate. So I'm about as much as a tea nerd as a coffee nerd.

    I do go out of my way to find a really nice lapsang souchong though, I just love the smokey flavour. The organic stall on the market has a nice one, but there is some variation and there are some lovely tea shops around which sell speciality ones.

    I have completely forgotten mate tea!!
    I drink a lot of mate tea from the gourd, especially here in Argentina...

    Love to try the real deal like in your photo @DhammaDragon . What I have is nice but obviously the way you have it brewed there looks great!

    Yerba mate in tea bags tastes so much better when drank with hot milk, as a chai tea, @Hozan.
    The real deal can be shocking for the gringos :3
    It takes some getting used to...

    When I first started drinking Yerba Mate I got some Mate Cocido which came in standard tea bags. It's apparently something less strong which they give to children amongst others. Might be worth a try for those who want something less strong.

    Personally I didn't think the normal Mate had anything wrong with it, but then I like strong teas.

    I used to buy my mum Captain Scotts extra strong tea, she would leave the tea-bag in as well, gawd!!

    "Mate cocido" is usually yerba mate drank with hot milk, as the Indian chai tea.
    Children drink that a lot.
    Mate drank from the gourd is very strong and not for the faint of heart.
    It was the only beverage that kept me awake in the long nights that I had to study for college exams.
