Known as the "Beverage of the Gods" in South America - we're not going to argue with them! Either way, you can look forward to enjoying the taste of South America.
What it is?
Mate tea comes from the green leaves of a type of holly that is said to bring good health effects.
Why we love it
To be enjoyed around a campfire or in the comfort of your living room. This really is bringing back trips to South America.
Where it’s from
Yerba Mate was first used by the Guarani Indians who believed it could cleanse and heal the spirit. Now millions enjoy it in South America, especially in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina. Our Yerba Mate is grown on a 100% organic farm in Southern Brazil.
How our drink hits the senses
Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU, a sweetness hits you but it's followed by an almost spicy scent. During infusion, the classic Mate taste dominates the cup, as it should.
The taste journey
Sweet yet bitter, smooth yet spicy, simple yet complex - what a journey.
1tsp // 100°C // 3-5 mins (A short infusion time brings about a stimulating effect, longer weakens it)
