Yerba Mate tea 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.
Its taste has been compared to that of green tea but with a more herbaceous, grassy character. Enjoyed hot or iced it can also be mixed with fruit juices for an energizing punch.
Our Yerba Mate is an herbal beverage from Brazil that contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 150° for 3-5 minutes.
Most teas are prepared using four simple steps: add the tea leaves to water, steep the tea leaves, remove the tea leaves, enjoy. Mate (pronounced Mah-tay) is not most tea. Besides being made from the South American yerba mate plant (a type of holly) instead of the tea plant, it is also enjoyed with the leaves still in the cup. To prepare it, Mate afficionados first pack their cup with yerba mate twigs and leaves. They then add water before poking a filtered metal straw right into the leaves. The tea is then shared socially, passing from person to person.
