About Mate Mint:

Our Mate Mint tea consists of hand-blended Organic Green Argentinian Mate with cooling spearmint leaves.

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, 100% Organic Spearmint.

Flavor Profile:

Cool, minty aroma and smooth, herbaceous flavor.

Brewing Instructions:

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.
