If mate itself isn’t considered tropical, the addition of mango, orange, and lemon flavors will certainly push it over the edge. It’s an easy to drink beverage that has achieved a nice balance of fruit and “tea” flavors, with a mild amount of organic cane juice providing a slight amount of sweetness. But again, the mate flavor is not as strong as competing drinks that are out there, which we think will let Honest reach a drinker that’s a bit closer to the mainstream. On the packaging side, the fruit backdrop is our favorite of the three flavors, helping to whet the appetite and also act as something familiar in what might be a new flavor for many consumers. Definitely worth a try.
