What is Yerba Mate?

Popular in parts of South America, the leaves and twigs of the yerba mate plant are dried and steeped in hot water to make an herbal tea. Yerba mate can be enjoyed as a hot or iced mate tea. 

Does Yerba Mate have caffeine?

Yes, if you are feeling a bit sluggish and need help with mental focus, Yerba Mate may do the trick. Looking for an alternative for coffee? Yerba Mate has a moderate level of caffeine that may help regenerate your energy level, but steeps in with less caffeine than a cup of coffee. 

Is Yerba Mate tea a good tea to blend?

Yes! The chai spice and fruit undertones of this mate blend make it a perfect pairing companion for other Chai teas such as White Ayurvedic Chai. We recommend blending these teas with a 1:1 ratio and brew the blend at the White Chai temperature. The result is a smooth, delicious mate tea blend with a spicy/fruity flavor. 

Other teas that include cinnamon, ginger, or masala spices also blend well with a yerba mate. If you experiment with the stronger spiced teas, we suggest steeping no longer than 5 minutes, with just-below-boiling water temperature. This creates a spicy and sweet blend that'll keep you coming back for more.

Tasty and Enjoyable

Looking for a great tea and found one with this stuff! Highly recommend to anyone interested in a more spiced tea. Incredibly similar to Teavanna's Samurai Chai Mate which was my absolute favorite tea until they closed down.

Fantastic taste

Extremely similar to “Teavana’s”version - very satisfied!

Almost Perfect Teavana Clone

This tea has the same exact flavor profile of the former Teavana samurai chai matte. The only noticeable difference I observed is that the tea requires about double the time to steep in order to get the flavor bomb I was use to with Teavana. In short, I'm very happy I found this alternative, and I'll now be getting the large size.
