Product Description

Love Tea - Yerba Mate Loose Leaf Tea (60g)

Native to South America, yerba mate was traditionally consumed by the indigenous Guaran and Tupi peoples for its high caffeine content and rich antioxidant properties. Caffeine has a stimulating effect on the nervous system and can support energy production, vitality and mental clarity. Yerba mate can be prepared in a teapot, like a traditional green tea, and offers a vegetal, earthy and slightly toasty flavour.

The presence of polyphenols offers abundant antioxidant properties. This powerful antioxidant content and naturally occurring caffeine content, have been linked with yerba mate traditional use in supporting the immune system, and stimulating the central nervous system. It has also traditionally been used to support energy production, mental focus and memory, and to enhance physical performance. It is best enjoyed in the morning, to ensure the stimulating effect and caffeine content are utilised before the evening.

Traditionally Yerba Mate is prepared in a hollowed-out gourd, which is the fruit of the Calabash tree. We have found that brewing Yerba Mate¨ in a teapot, as you would a traditional tea, offers a convenient yet still flavorful brew while allowing you to use the tools you already have at home.

Place a heaped teaspoon (2 grams) of tea per cup (250ml) into a teapot or infuser. Add filtered water at 75°C - 85°C and allow to infuse for 3-4 minutes. Strain the tea and serve.
