Toasted Mate in bulk available for wholesale. Long hailed in South American countries as a healthy, energizing social beverage, Yerba Mate is finding a new audience in North America. Notable is its ability to provide energy without the jitteriness suffered by coffee imbibers.
This toasted finer cut version from Brazil is mellower, yet fuller bodied and a great alternative to coffee. The toasting process is similar to coffee roasting and yields a darker, deeper cup that still offers its energizing effects. It has a toasty, comforting chicory note that takes milk and sugar well.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 150° for 3-5 minutes.
Toasting is a process by which the chemical properties, moisture levels, and flavors in a food are changed by the addition of heat. Bread is, of course, the most obvious example, with wire cages for toasting bread first showing up in the early 1800s. Marshmallows are another common fireside example, with nuts being a popular choice in the kitchen for their use in baking and cooking. One toasty treat you might not have heard of, however, is tea, such as our Toasted Mate.
