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. Its taste has been compared to that of green tea but with a more herbaceous, grassy character. Enjoyed hot or iced it can also be mixed with fruit juices for an energizing punch. Our Yerba Mate is an herbal beverage from Argentina that contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap. Steep at 150°F for 3-5 minutes

      I would say this is a great sub for coffee but I dis not really like it. It has some spices that I’m not crazy for

      I bought a yerba mate sampler as a way to curb my energy drink habit and reduce the amount of caffeine I consume, and I can honestly say I'm enjoying every cup! This mate is light, bright, and delicate in it's simplicity. It's cozy, but not so much that it makes you want to crawl back into bed to savor it. It's a nice on-the-go drink with a pleasant taste.

      Not much for taste but definately gives you a kick in the butt if you need energy!

      Really different that other yerba mates Ive tried. Its much more fresh and bright than others. Needs to be steeped for at least 10 minutes.
