Yerba Mate Herbal Tea, grown beneath the rainforest canopy in South America, the Guarani
Indians have been drinking the steeped juice of the leaves of the wild yerba tree-bush for
centuries. They cite numerous health benefits, including increased immune system strength,
improved digestion, stress reduction, and stimulation of mental processes.
It is truly the South American passion! Yerba Mate comes from a tree, "Ilex Paraguariensis",
cultivated in South America. The yerba is the leaves; dried and crushed to make a tea-like herb.
You may add sugar or honey to sweeten the Yerba as the Argentineans do. Or drink it plain as the
majority of South America does.
To allow proper flavor release and to avoid a bitter flavor, Yerba tea should be steeped in hot
water, not boiling. By using a "hot steep" you can infuse the same tea leaves several times and still
experience an excellent tea.
