Yerba Green Mate' (Contains Caffeine)

  In South America, where the leaves for maté are traditionally grown, drinking maté is part of many people’s everyday life.  The indigenous peoples of Latin America have long been drinking the classic infusion of maté leaves.  In Argentina, more than 80 % of the population still drink maté tea at least once a week.  In Europe and North America, maté, served as a refreshing drink in bottles or cans, is viewed more as a trendy drink and is a versatile and fresh alternative to coffee or black tea.

Maté, Green (Article no.: 43021)For the perfect maté tea, first moisten the leaves with lukewarm water.  Then let the moistened maté steep for about 20 seconds so that the leaves swell as much as possible.  In the final step, infuse the wet leaves with hot water.  Traditionally, maté is drunk with a straw (bombilla) out of a hollowed bottle gourd (calebasse).  However, its earthy flavour also comes into its own in the classic tea cup.
