Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate

The traditional beverage of South America and known for it's high caffeine content which is very stimulating and contains a number of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. The infusion starts off light with a fresh flavour. The longer you brew it for the stronger the infusion will become. A great coffee substitute without the caffeine crash!

Mate can be brewed like a traditional tea or left to continuously brew in a calabash (gourd) as they do in South America.

About:
Yerba mate or yerba-maté (pronounced "yur-ba mah-teh") is a plant species of the Holly Tree genus Ilex native to South America. It is the traditional beverage of Brazil, and is traditionally steeped in a hollow gourd and drunk through a metal straw (bombilla). 

Brewing: Always use freshly boiled water. The taste will vary depending on the amount of tea used and how long it is steeped. Longer = stronger. If left too long the tea may also turn bitter.
