Product Details

The craze for Yerba Mate is taking the tea world by storm…

The craze for Yerba Mate is taking the tea world by storm. Originally enjoyed as a powerful stimulant by Amazonian tribes, herbal Yerba Mate is unusually high in caffeine with a taste you might compare to a smoky gunpowder green tea.

The tea takes its name from the Spanish word for herb 'hierba' and the Quechuan word 'mati', meaning 'drink' or 'gourd' - in other words, a herbal drink sipped from a gourd. Travelling around South America, you may well be offered a gourd of the legendary brew shared among friends - one sip, and they say you'll be jumping from tree to tree.

We've created a unique Yerba Mate blend with refreshing peppermint, luxuriant lemon balm and juicy grapefruit to get you buzzing over breakfast. What's more, high in antioxidants and reputed to speed up weight loss and boost the immune system, it's far more than simply a stimulant.
