Yerba Maté Roasted

Designation: Absolutely Organic
Item Order #: T5197

Quick Overview

Yerba Maté, (pronounced herba-may-tay), also known as "Jesuit's tea," comes from the South American Indian name “maté” meaning "drinking vessel" or "gourd". Jesuits added the word "yerba," meaning the herb of excellence.

This tea grows mainly in Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina, near streams and rivers and puts forth large white flowers. Maté is grown for its leaves; they are harvested and dried from December to August.

When roasted, Yerba Maté becomes complex and full of body, a perfect substitute for your morning coffee. Little wonder this is the preferred beverage of many South Americans.

• Good water is an essential part of brewing a great cup of tea. We recommend using spring or filtered water.
• Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
• This is a delicate herb and is more potent when not exposed to extremely high temperatures. So that your tea has its maximum medicinal properties and flavour, be sure that your water is slightly cooled from the boiling point when you pour it over your tea.
• If you desire a medicinal tea, be sure to use one tea bag per cup of hot water, cover and steep for 7-12 minutes. This is known as the infusion method.
• If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew, use one teabag per cup of hot water. Pour water over teabags, cover, and let steep 3 to 5 minutes to taste. Enjoy!
