Yerba Mate is an uplifting and energizing herb that is indigenous to the Amazon and is wildly popular throughout parts of South America for its robust flavor. Often thought of as the "tea" of Latin America, yerba mate is one of just four botanicals in the Americas to contain caffeine. It has a bittersweet, earthy and mineral flavor with nuances of olive leaf and eucalyptus. Traditional roasting and aging of yerba mate creates a pleasant, toasted aroma and ranging complexity.



Tasting Notes: Bittersweet, toasty herby flavor with nuances of olive leaf and eucalyptus

Ingredients: Organic yerba mate.

Argentina
Water Temperature: 212°F (Boiling)
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 5-6 minutes

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I'm not sure if I even like Yerba mate tea to start with, so am probably not the best person to compare it to others that I've tried. This was as sophisticated as it gets, I guess, though take care not to over brew it as the taste can get quite strong quickly.

From first opening the bag to the last drop Rishi's Yerba Mate' is leagues and bounds above other brands i've tried. The aroma is almost addictive, i cant stop opening the bag and taking a deep wiff! The complexity of this Mate' is a totally different sensory experience and makes other mate's taste like sawdust. a must try for the serious Mate' drinker!
