Yerba, that’s right… Welcome back Green Yerba Mate!
Have you ever tried this infusion? If not, and you love the pick-me-up feeling of caffeine, this brew might be your next favourite. Yerba Mate is said to contain a fair share of caffeine similar to that of coffee. It is not strictly ‘tea’ as it does not come from the Camelia Sinensis plant. It is a Herbal infusion created from an ever-green South American Holly Tree. People have taken to drinking it for its suggested health benefits as well as its energising properties. Needless to say, we are a fan!
Incredibly popular and harvested in South America, this infusion has a taste similar to that of a very slightly smoky, or perhaps earthy green tea. Once harvested, the drying process often takes part next to a wood fire, which imparts this unique vegetal, delicate smoky flavour. Delicious hot or cold, Green Yerba Mate has spread massivly in popularity. Who needs coffee when such fantastic infusions exist without the caffeine crash?
To Brew: We recommend you brew our Green Yerba Mate tea for around 5-8 minutes with water that's 100c to get the best flavour. Once the time is up, don't forget to remove the leaves!
Best Drunk: Morning or Noon
Contains: 100% Green Mate
