A less common version of Yerba Maté, grown at a 100% organic, sustainable family farm in Southern Brazil. The leaves are gently roasted until they darken and develop a rich, roasted flavor profile.
Yerba Maté (Ilex paraguariensis) is an evergreen plant of the holly (family Aquifoliaceae). The plant can reach heights of 10-12 meters, but is generally pruned at about 4-6 meters. Although the plant does produce small flowers and fruit, only the distinct oval-shaped leaves and stems are plucked for processing.
Gourd & Bombilla
The Maté Gourd and Bombilla (straw) are traditional vessels used for enjoying Yerba Maté. The gourd is filled one-third full with the leaves and after adding water, the brew is enjoyed by sipping through the bombilla.
Flavor Profile: Toasty, smooth and full-bodied with light cocoa notes.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Roasted Yerba Maté.
