No. 23, Green Yerba Mate


Energizing and refreshing, mate is an excellent alternative to traditional tea and is an herbal infusion with a history all its own. Grab your rebenque and poncho, and sip this versatile brew from a traditional gourd and bombilla. Organic, fair trade, and delightful with a splash of milk and sugar, we hope you find exploring this brew as welcoming as we do. 

Origin: Kraus Family Farm, Misiones, Argentina


  • Brewing Instructions

    For Teapot:  

    • 1 tsp per 8oz/250ml of water  
    • 175ºF/80ºC  (Bring fresh, cold spring water to a boil. Remove from heat, and set aside 3 minutes.)  
    • Moisten leaves with cold water, and then add hot water.  
    • Brew 5-7 minutes

    Brewing Instructions for Mate Gourd: Remember to cure your gourd according to manufacturer's instructions, or learn how to here. To brew, fill gourd 2/3 full with loose mate leaves. Add a small amount of cold water to moisten leaves, and gently stir. Next, bring fresh, cold spring water to a boil, let cool to 150ºF/66ºC, and pour over leaves to cover. Allow mate to brew for 1-2 minutes, and enjoy. Refill gourd with water as necessary. Avoid stirring the mate with your bombilla, as that can clog it.
