      If you like atomic fireballs candy you may like this offering. This blend has alot of ingredients, but the tropical fruit flavors and the chai spice are lost on me because of the aggressive Overpowering spicy cinnamon and ginger. This tea isn't bad, but it personally didn't impress me much, I just really hated the taste. I generally like cinnamon flavored tea like when paired with apple. but this one was way to SPICY hot cinnamon for me personally.

      When iced, it's a delicious energy boost. I like the spiciness.

      This is has a lot of spices. I think it tastes best iced with a little bit of sweetener.

      I like it. Not my favorite, but it has a nice tropical twist to a chai tea.

      I had this iced. It was somewhat unusual to my taste. I did enjoy it but I probably wouldn't reorder. If you like Mate and unusual flavors give it a try.

      Solid tea, with a good profile. Smells more spiced than it is, but the taste is still very good what with the fruity undertones. I wouldn't seek it out but it certainly isn't a loser.

      An interesting tea with the lemon and spices. Not one I would repurchase but I enjoyed the sample I had.

      Another great Adagio tea. The lemon flavor pairs nicely with the cinnamon flavor. It is a refreshing and energizing tea!

      Pretty good tea, nice in the evening. Although I rarely find myself reaching for this over other teas in my collection.

      Very interesting flavor. It has a mix of different herbs. An unique mix

      Mmm spicy! There's a little bit of natural sweetness to this that really pushes it beyond just good.

      While not my favorite Mate from Adagio, this one is definitely a good tea to keep in rotation!

      There are a lot of flavors going on in this tea. Many people love it but it's a bit too much for me.

      This tea, blended with adagio's White Ayurvedic Chai almost perfectly recreates the Teavana blend that piqued my interest in tea years ago. Love it! To create the blend, add 1 tsp of Samurai Mate and 2 tsp of White Ayurvedic Chai. Steep for 5 minutes @ 212°F.

      I can't stand this tea on it's own, but it is good when mixed with Adagio's Raja Oolong Chai.

      I've never tasted a tea with so many ingredients, nor a tea where so many ingredients blend together so well! Typically, quantity decreases quality, but this is certainly not the case for Samurai Mate. Cinnamon and ginger sizzle on the tip of the tongue, followed by a flood of smooth lemongrass, mingled with green roobios. Fruity mango, papaya, and pineapple round out the feel-good, energizing sip with a sweet tang. So glad I took a chance on this tea! Don't miss it.

      Yummy! This tea is sooooooo good! I love the cinnamon flavour! This tea isn't in the least bit spicy. :)

      DELICIOUS!!! absolutely love this tea. The taste is wonderful, I mix it with either the green chai or Rooibos Vanilla chai. I love mate for the sustained energy without the palpitations from heavy caffeine intake. This tea has replaced my morning coffee

      Strong cinnamon flavor and a little fruity. Really smooth -- this one is a winner.

      You will not like this tea if you don't care for chai spices. If you DO, however, it's lovely. Very smooth, no acidity or tannin, and followed up with very pleasant fruity notes. The cinnamon and cardamom are very present, which I enjoy. I made up a pot of it and drank the whole thing before I realized it.

      Samurai Mate was a huge disappointment. It was way too spicy and undrinkable. It was just too much
