Yerba Mate Herbal Tea - Loose Leaf

View larger Image

Steenbergs loose leaf Yerba Maté tea comes from the state of Parana and Mato Grosso in Brazil.  It is a luxury version of the classic South American herbal tea drink - maté  or Paraguay tea - and was used as a caffeine drink before the European settlers introduced coffee plantations to Latin America. Steenbergs Yerba Maté loose leaf is processed in a similar manner to "normal" China tea with the leaves picked, steamed then dried over a fire before being left to age and further develop its flavour. Can be drunk as is or with milk or sugar depending on taste.


Mate has a slightly higher anitioxidant capacity than green tea.


Please be aware that Yerba Maté contains caffeine, so is not caffeine free unlike many herbal teas.


Instructions: use 1 teaspoon on Steenbergs Yerba Maté per cup, then pour over boiling hot water and steep for about 5 minutes.  Brew in a normal cup or mug or for a more authentic feel, you could brew in a calebasse and drink through a bombilla or mate drinking straw.


Ingredients: luxury Yerba maté


Steenbergs Yerba Maté Tea is part of the Steenbergs retailers range of herbal teas - loose leaf.
