Yerba Mate Leaf

Yerba Maté is a traditional South American brew that’s been said to offer the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage. It produces a smooth and refreshing full bodied herbal tea. Yerba Maté Leaf Roasted are gently roasted until they darken and develop a rich, roasted flavor profile, giving it a delicious nutty flavor with smooth chocolatey notes. Maté is known as an energizer and rejuvenator, and contains 24 vitamins and minerals and provides 15 essential amino acids necessary to promote healthy muscle tissue, along with antioxidant properties. Maté averages 45 mg of caffeine per serving, generally about half as much as coffee.

See our Yerba Maté Gourd and Bombilla straws, the traditional vessels for preparing Maté.

Packaging: To preserve freshness, aroma, and potency, our 1 lb loose teas are packaged in a polyfoil bag with a re-sealable zipper closure, protecting the contents from light exposure and moisture. Our 4 oz loose teas are packaged in a convenient stand-up pouch with a re-sealable zipper closure.

Daily serving size: Pour 6 oz of boiling water (212° F) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 3-4 minutes.

Good stuff

This your gold standard. It is what I am used to from Starwest Botanicals. Fresh smelling and select nice leaves....NO twigs.
The best.

Better than any Tea Bag Version

I was disappointed in the flavor of the tea bag version that I purchased at the local stores. I was about to give up and was told to try loose tea which also allows for some of 'blending'. Wow, this tea is great on its own but adding some hibiscus or another spicey herb works great. I am using the non-roasted type because I like the grassy notes more than the toasty ones.

Questions & Answers for Yerba Mate Leaf

i purchased 1 pound bags of Yerba Mate tea and Roobios tea but there is NO instructions as to how much to use, i brew a gallon at a time so i am trying to figure out how much to use, thank you
Question by: Donald Beegle on March 14, 2014
A good starting point for most herbs and teas is about one half to one tablespoon per cup of water, which would translate to 8-16 tablespoons (or half to one cup).
