Yerba Mate is an indigenous herb of the Amazon and popular throughout Latin America for its robust flavor. It's often referred to as the "tea" of Latin America. Organic Yerba Mate is one of many potential renewable rainforest products and part of a socially and environmentally conscious movement known as "market driven conservation." Rishi's Organic Yerba Mate is a sustainable, shade grown product that Amazon tribes rely upon as an alternative source of income to destructive logging.
Tasting Notes: Bittersweet, toasty herby flavor with nuances of olive leaf and eucalyptus
Ingredients: Organic yerba mate.
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.

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!
