Yerba Mate

From the oldest wild yerbales (yerba forests) in the world, we've procured this delicious pure leaf mate' (pronounced mah-tay) using sustainable harvesting practices that support environmental protection programs. A healthy alternative to coffee, the roasted leaf is consumed in many parts of Latin America as a refreshing start to the day. Rich in vitamin C, with a relatively small amount of caffeine, it is a natural stimulant. Delicious with a splash of milk.

Tea preparation is a matter of personal choice and preference, but here some guidelines to get you started.

  • Black Tea can be brewed in truly boiling water, usually steeped for 3-5 minutes.

  • Green Tea should be brewed with water between 160-175F and only steeped for 2-4 minutes.

  • White Tea can be brewed a bit warmer, at 175F and steeped for 3-5 minutes.

  • Oolong Tea is best brewed at 190F, but steeped longer than black tea for 5-8 minutes.

  • Rooibos Tea can also be brewed in fully boiling water and steeped indefinitely.

  • Herbal Infusions come in so many varieties that there can be no specific guidelines, but you can generally start with boiling water and a 5 minute steep.
