Yerba maté is a caffeinated drink that is also rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Yerba maté is invigorating in a different way than coffee and, like tea, does not give the stress-like feeling that you can get from coffee.
The taste of yerba maté is earthy, mineral and bittersweet. It has a roasted aroma and you can make out shades of olive leaf.
This yerba maté is a pure blend of whole and cut leaves that have been dried with hot air. It gives a mild and rich taste, which is completely smoke-free . When yerba mate is referred to negatively, it is because of the smoke that is used to dry and flavor it, but our version is made entirely without the use of smoke.
We also have a blend with only whole blends here YERBA MATÉ LEAVES - UNMOOKED
