3-4 minute brew time
Organic Yerba Mate Leaf
Yerba mate is traditionally served in a container called a gourd, also known as a calabash.It’s commonly sipped through a metal straw that has a filter on its lower end to strain out the leaf fragments.
To prepare mate, fill the bottom third of the calabash with dried or toasted mate leaves prior to adding hot water. If you do not own a calabash, you can prepare it in a French press.
The tea is often served with burnt sugar, lemon juice, or milk and can be topped off with hot water several times before using new leaves to make a new batch.
Although traditionally consumed hot, yerba mate may also be served cold, especially in hot climates. Yerba Mate is best prepared as a loose leaf in traditional methods; however, tea bags may be used for quicker brew.
Yerba Mate is an excellent coffee alternative, 100% organic and fair trade.
