This unsmoked, pure leaf yerba mate contains nearly twice the antioxidant power of green tea. It comes from a small organic family farm in northeastern Argentina, where it is dried with a unique smoke-free drying process to achieve a smooth, clean flavor. Eco Teas takes the extra time to remove stems and powder, so the loose yerba mate is the most nutritious, energizing product possible.
Hot: First, moisten the herb with cool water. Steep in hot water (never boiling) water for 3-5 minutes. Strain and enjoy.
Iced: Steep directly in cold water for 10+ minutes. Strain, then add ice, citrus and/or a sweetener.
More Options: Use a French press, coffee maker, tea ball, strainer or espresso machine. Blend with herbs for added flavors and health benefits. Sip traditional-style with a bombilla (tea filter-straw).
