Yerba mate is a powerful tea-like leaf from South America. It provides the energy of coffee yet provides the health benefits of tea. More importantly, the culture of yerba mate is rooted in the values of being present with your friends and loved ones. Loose-leaf yerba mate is arguably the fresher, healthier option compared to its canned and teabag versions. Enjoy this South American tradition in various ways. Infuse it in a mate cup, gourd, or French press.
