It doesn't give me the jitters like coffee tends to do each morning. As I am transitioning out of the soda pop venue, the yerba mate came at a great time. Nicely flavored and does taste very similar to tea. Richer in flavor than many teas I have tried. I love how much nutrition I am getting in just one cup as well as the slow energy release. I have been enjoying a cup of Fresh Yerba Mate each afternoon when I start getting the sleepy eyes. I have been brewing it and then pouring over ice for a nice cool, energizing drink. Some studies have even shown yerba mate to help with weight loss!
Mate Factor has a wealth of information on their website about Yerba Mate and the entire process of taking it from the tree to the bag. Super detailed info if you would like to read more!
They sell loose leaf and tea bags. Tradition has it that they originally drank yerba mate from a gourd. Now that would be something I would love to try! My husband was recently in Brazil for a business trip and I only wish I had known about yerba mate while he was there (though his work schedule was so packed he wouldn't have been able to do anything with that info!)
24 large tea bags in each box for $5.95. That is a super price for organic fresh yerba mate!
