About Argentinian Yerba Mate:
We source our Argentinian Yerba Mate from an organic farm in Argentina that has been certified organic since 1993. This grade of Mate is especially made for us to contain only leaves. Often, Mate can be found in the marketplace containing both leaves and stems of the plant.
Yerba Mate (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.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Yerba Mate
Crisp, herbaceous, vegetal aroma and taste.
Every tea is different and can be brewed in different ways. The chart below is not a hard-and-fast guide for brewing this tea, but rather a place to get started. Steeping time may vary based on your personal taste or on how many infusions have already been done. Experiment with the brewing of your tea to discover its unique character.
The Mate Gourd and Bombilla (straw) are traditional vessels used for enjoying Yerba Mate. The Gourd is filled three-quarters full with the leaves and after adding water, the brew is enjoyed by sipping through the bombilla.
