Yerba mate is a species of the holly genus, with the botanical name Ilex paraguariensis A. St.-Hil., named by the French botanist Auguste Francois Cesar Provencal de Saint-Hilaire. Yerba mate is used to make a beverage known as mate. When served cold, the drink is called terete in Guaran?. The short flat leaves of the yerba mate shrub brew a light green infusion that is packed with strong earthy flavors. Similar to some green teas, this unroasted green yerba mate has an aroma reminiscent of a plowed field or freshly cut grass. Its slightly vegetal, herbal flavor is both fortifying and satisfying.

Some teas are recommended for brewing with boiling water, while others are brewed at lower temperatures. Even when brewing a tea at a lower temperature, it is recommended that you first boil the water (to kill bacteria etc.) and then allow the water to cool to the correct temperature (ice cubes speed up the process). While you can certainly brew any tea with boiling water, it will change the flavor of the tea.
Blended in the USA.
