Green Yerba Mate
Mate (pronounced mah-tay) is made by brewing the dry leaves of the Yerba Mate tree, a small evergreen that is a member of the Holly family. The tree is native to the subtropical highlands of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina, and it is in those countries that the majority of Yerba Mate is consumed. It has a vegetative character similar to green tea. Contrary to some popular reports, mate does contain caffeine, although many people report that they tolerate mate better than other caffeine-containing beverages. Use approximately 1-2 tablespoons per 3-cup pot and brew in steaming (not boiling) water for about 3 minutes.
Average Customer Rating
The first tea that I've tried and by far my favorite. Great tea to try for all the coffee drinkers out there, similar bitterness with tons more flavor.
