Yerba Mate is an uplifting and energizing herb that is indigenous to the Amazon and is wildly popular throughout parts of South America for its robust flavor. Often thought of as the "tea" of Latin America, yerba mate is one of just four botanicals in the Americas to contain caffeine. It has a bittersweet, earthy and mineral flavor with nuances of olive leaf and eucalyptus. Traditional roasting and aging of yerba mate creates a pleasant, toasted aroma and ranging complexity. We hand-blended it with cool organic peppermint leaves that are a natural fit together. The flavor is cool, with a minty aroma and smooth herbaceous taste.
