About Roasted Mate:
Our Roasted Mate is grown at a 100% organic sustainable family farm in Southern Brazil. A delicious infusion that is less common than other forms of Yerba Mate, Roasted Mate is gently roasted to bring out more nutty, chocolatey flavor notes.
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. Contains caffeine.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Roasted Yerba Mate.
Toasty, smooth, and full-bodied with light cocoa notes.
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.
