Yerba Mate is a green tea-like beverage from South America with a refreshing herbal flavor and a mild amount of caffeine. This roasted version is toasty and hearty.
The term "mate" is a Guarani Indian word for gourd, referring to the hollowed out gourds once used to hold the tea. In traditional use of yerba mate, the tea cup is often shared among close friends and family, all of whom use the same straw, or bombilla. Sharing the same straw is considered a sign of total acceptance and friendship.
Mate should be steeped in hot (not boiling) water and can be enjoyed plain or with the addition of any or all of the following: honey, coconut milk, cinnamon, spearmint, or citrus peel. Delicious, Friendly, and Vibrant!
