If you are already a yerba mate drinker, the Mint & Honey variety of Bombilla Gourd is probably your best bet as it has the strongest tea flavor. While it most likely uses the same brew as the other two flavors, Mint & Honey is a much more subdued additive than lemon or peach. Given the recent proliferation of mint-flavored beverages, we were expecting a slightly stronger mint taste to this product, but Bombilla Gourd has successfully delivered an enjoyable spearmintused these flavors – and they are just that: flavors, not the real thing -- sparingly. Switching to real mint and honey would likely be a costly decision, but it might give this variety a much more defined and enjoyable flavor. Right now, something just doesn’t feel complete about this product, although its packaging remains superior.
