Loose Leaf Yerba Mate
Our journey commences with the classic Argentine Yerba Mate, where it all begins. These 100% air-dried leaves, free from smoking, offer a rich, complex taste with delicate vegetal and fruity notes.
Our Yerba Mate is sourced meticulously from a farming family in northeastern Argentina, dedicated to eco-friendly, fair trade, and entirely organic agricultural practices.
Featuring the classic cut with stems, known as 'con palos,' this blend includes leaves, stems, and a touch of powder. The stems, or 'palos,' play a vital role; rich in Theobromine, they naturally sweeten the infusion while tempering any leaf bitterness.
DISCOVER YERBA MATE'S UNIQUE INFUSION METHOD
Yerba mate has its own unique infusion method, traditionally enjoyed using a gourd and bombilla. The gourd is filled with yerba mate leaves, allowing for multiple infusions, and the bombilla, a filter-tipped metal straw, enables direct sipping while preserving the rich flavor and nutrients. This classic approach highlights the cultural and communal significance of mate drinking.
Fill your gourd two-thirds full.
Insert the bombilla and add hot water.
Sip, share, savor, and repeat up to 15 infusions.
