Paraguayan yerba mate Pajarito Elaborada – review
Paraguayan yerba mate Pajarito Elaborada is the best description of Paraguayan classics. Strong aroma and smoky hints make it a product that every fan of classic yerba mate will enjoy. This proposition is appreciated thanks to its value for money, taste, and quality.
The packet is very simple and made of paper. The canary makes the logo recognizable and pleasant to watch. Pajarito has probably been the first yerba mate product for many mateists not only from South America but also from Europe. Its recognition is owed to the characteristic logo created by the company Lauro Raatz. Let’s focus on the details. The aroma of this product is smoky, strong, and very pleasant. Pajarito Elaborada is a great example of typical Paraguayan mate tea - it contains a lot of dust and twigs. The product is finely ground yet you can also find some medium-cut leaves in there.
After the first water refill, you can smell a bit vegetal and smoky aroma. The infusions are delicately foaming and remain aromatic and strong even after a couple of refills. Due to its strong taste and aroma, Pajarito Elaborada is recommended rather to the advanced than the beginners. If you have just started your adventure with yerba mate, this product may turn out to be too bitter for you. However, its properties will be perfect for everyone who appreciates classic flavour and aroma of Paraguayan yerba mate. We suggest that beginners try more delicate products at the beginning. It is good to start with Brazilian options - they are usually air-dried, thanks to what the bitterness is much more delicate than in smoke-dried products.
