Know someone with green fingers?

Ah, the joys of a stroll in the garden. This herbal blend is a real treat for anyone with green fingers, and all those looking for a tea a little out of the ordinary. We've blended vibrant Yerba Mate with fragrant lavender, sweet Lemon verbena, and even an unusual addition of bamboo leaves. Yes, it's experimental. But it works.

Know someone with green fingers? We've created a tea for all budding herbalists, blending vibrant Yerba Mate with fragrant lavender, sweet Lemon verbena, and even an unusual addition of bamboo and boldo leaves. Yerba Mate and boldo were once the secret of the Amazonian tribes, reputed to boost energy levels and aid the digestion, and bamboo leaves have long been a staple of Chinese medicine. What's more, there's something particularly alluring about the combination of Lavender and Lemon verbena, creating a rounded sweetness and a heady aroma - it's perfectly balanced with the strong, invigorating hit of the Yerba Mate. Yes, it's experimental. But it works.

 

The Great Taste Awards have been described as the Oscars of the food world—so you can imagine we were pretty chuffed when our Lavender Yerba Mate won a gold star at this year’s awards. The judges called it a “Good quality cut leaf with an intriguing aroma… The blend shows thought and skill”.

Origin

South America

The herbal Yerba Mate plant is native to South America, where it was first brewed and served as a stimulant by indigenous tribes. You’ll find Yerba Mate is particularly popular in the central and southern parts of the continent, including Argentina, Bolivia, southern Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and southern Chile, where it’s a social drink served as a stimulant and sipped from gourds. The Argentinian gauchos swore by Yerba Mate as a hangover cure, and the Guarani people considered it a gift from the goddesses of the moon…
