Yerba mate (pronounced yerba mah-tey) is native to South America where it’s been used for centuries by native tribes who believe in its ability to naturally energise, focus and rejuvenate the body. If that wasn’t enough, this special little shrub is jammed packed full of goodness and in 1964 The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society were so interested in this healthy source of vitamins they did a thorough study of the plant’s properties. They concluded “it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value” and that yerba mate contains “practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life.” Wowsers, that’s some statement – no wonder teapigs Nick, Becky, James and Reggie adore this blend!

how does it taste?

A bit like a smoky green tea. Could this be the new Lapsang Souchong?

good if you're feeling

open-minded and willing to take a risk. This is an Amazonian secret energy brew - it may smell like creosote, but it works like magic.

how we like it

Smoky - this unique flavour works well with a sprinkle of ginger or cinnamon.

Iced

Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water.

brew time

  • Tea temple - 1 per person. Infuse in boiling water. Brew for 3+ minutes.
  • Loose tea - 1 rounded teaspoonful per person. Brew for 3+ minutes.

Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.
