This is a pretty good effort on the part of Pacific Natural Foods, blending a nice base of yerba mate with lemon and ginger flavors. There are actual lemon and ginger juices in this USDA Organic product, which definitely add to the quality of the product. It is a sweetened product (with evaporated cane juice), but there isn’t all that much sweetness to the product. As a result, the 16.9 ounce Tetra Pak has 80 calories, which is certainly a manageable amount. All in all, we are fans of what’s inside this container. As for the container itself, well, we’re not really fans of the way that they’ve branded this product. The use of a box is a nice alternative to its glass and plastic competitors, but the design of the product isn’t overly appealing. A better design, especially one that helps whet the appetite and add some personality would certainly help this product out.
