Preparation: Pour hot (but not boiling) water over tea bag and allow to steep for 5 minutes. Try with our Mascavo unrefined sugar or honey. Yerba Mate is good iced as well. If you're on the go, try dropping two tea bags in a pint of water, shake it up and allow to cold steep for 20 minutes or more. Be creative, experiment! There are many ways to enjoy Yerba Mate Tea everyday!
