Organic Chimarrao Yerba Mate Tea, 4 oz (114 g)


Product Description

Artisan Quality Fresh 100% Organic Brazilian Yerba Mate USDA Organic Pure Leaf Teas Brews 60 Cups Certified Organic by QAI Origin, Brazil Yerba Mate was first used by the Guarani Indians, who believed it could cleanse and heal the spirit. Now, millions enjoy it in South America. Our Mate is grown on a 100% organic, family farm in Southern Brazil. Chimarrao Chimarrao is a style of Yerba Mate and a local favorite in Rio Grande do Sul (a state in southern Brazil). The composition of the leaf is in the form of a powder, unlike the full leaves of the traditional Yerba Mate. The powdered consistency provides a creamy texture to the brew. Yerba Mate Yerba Mate (llex Paraguariensis) is an evergreen plant of the holly family (Aquifoliaceae). The plant can reach heights of 10-12 meters, but is generally pruned to about 4-6 meters.

Mate Constituents Mate contains vitamins (A, B1 B2, C and E), mineral salts, 15 amino acids and high levels of antioxidants. Its chemical constituents also include alkaloids (caffeine). Flavor Profile Cooling, sweet, refreshing taste. Will provide at least 3-4 infusions. Gourd & Bombilla The Mate Gourd and Bombilla (straw) are traditional vessels used for enjoying Yerba Mate. The Gourd is filled one-third full with the leaves and, after adding water, the brew is enjoyed by sipping through the bombilla. The Tao of Tea Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal.

Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environm
