Long hailed in South American countries as a healthy, energizing social beverage, Yerba Mate is finding a new audience in North America. Notable is its ability to provide energy without the jitteriness suffered by coffee imbibers.
Its taste has been compared to that of green tea but with a more herbaceous, grassy character. Enjoyed hot or iced it can also be mixed with fruit juices for an energizing punch.
Our Yerba Mate is an herbal beverage from Brazil that contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap.
Steep at 150° for 3-5 minutes.
