Long hailed in South American countries as a healthy, energizing social beverage, Yerba Mate is finding a new audience in North America. Notable is its ability to provide energy without the jitteriness suffered by coffee imbibers.
This toasted finer cut version from Brazil is mellower, yet fuller bodied and a great alternative to coffee. The toasting process is similar to coffee roasting and yields a darker, deeper cup that still offers its energizing effects. It has a toasty, comforting chicory note that takes milk and sugar well.
Please note that all Mate varieties contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap.
Steep at 150°F for 3-5 minutes
