Yerba Mate Tea

Native to Argentina, Yerba Mate is a member of the holy family and is rich in caffeine, containing roughly twice the levels found in tea. After harvesting, the leaves are heated-treated before being chopped and dried. Indigenous to the Amazon rainforest and popular throughout Latin America, Yerba Maté tea is quickly gaining popularity in the United States. The brewed flavor is strongly herbal and grassy. It contains a substance similar to caffeine, called matteine, which helps invigorate the mind and energize the body. Yerba maté is often used as a mood-enhancer and has been deemed as the “Drink of the Gods.”
