We are proud to offer Argentinian, Organic, Fair Trade Mate of the most superb leaf quality. Yerba Mate, the sacred Paraguayan tea plant, is the traditional and common daily drink of the Guarani Natives of Argentina. It is famous for its stimulating effects, as it contains up to 2% caffeine. It has numerous health benefits and mood lifting capability. We serve it in a typical gourd with a drinking straw, or bombilla. The infusion, made from the crushed, light green leaf of the mate plant, has an earthy, vegetal aroma, and a strongly herbal, bitter taste that can be softened by the addition of honey.
Prices range from 5.00 – 6.00
This traditional way of serving mate features a large amount of mate leaves in a small gourd with a bombilla or metal straw. Honey optional.
