Yerba Mate Tea (1/2lb Bag)

Beneath the rainforest canopy in South America, the Guarani Indians have been drinking the steeped juice of the leaves of the wild yerba tree-bush for centuries. They cite numerous health benefits, including increased immune system strength, improved digestion, stress reduction, and stimulation of mental processes.

In 1964 the Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society concluded it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to Mate in nutritional value and that Yerba (pronounced Sherba) Mate contains practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life.

Today, over 300,000 tons of Yerba Mate is produced yearly for consumption in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay. It is truly the South American passion! Yerba Mate comes from a tree, Ilex Paraguariensis , cultivated in South America. The yerba is the leaves; dried and crushed to make a tea-like herb. You may add sugar or honey to sweeten the Yerba as the Argentineans do. Or drink it plain as the majority of South America does.

Yerba Mate is my favorite "tea" to drink, and it had been a few months since my personal stock ran out. I brewed up a big pot as soon as I opened my package. For those who have never tried it, Yerba Mate essentially has an aroma of hay and a grassy taste with a light smokiness to it. The only (possible) downside to the particular Mate I received was that it was not as aromatic or flavorful as some others I have had. This might be because the bag was mainly fill with uncrushed leaves, causing less mass per spponful when adding to a teapot to brew. On the other hand, this is also a plus since I have opened packages of Yerba Mate before only to find half the bag filled with powder (which I personally find unpleasant to drink). I just added a few more spoonfuls to my pot and it tasted great. I will definitely be buying more once this bag is finished (which might be very soon)!

Yerba Mate
February 5, 2013
I like the tast of Yerba Mate in the yellow box I have not tried the other products. The only thing is it has been hard to find it in stores so when I do I buy, I buy 3 box's at a time.
