Story, Folklore, History...
Yerba Mate is a tea made from nourishing leaves of the South American rainforest holly tree, Ilex paraguariensis. People of South America have been drinking Yerba Mate for centuries enjoying its rejuvenative, invigorating and nourishing effects. Yerba mate contains caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine. Unlike coffee, yerba mate is not acid forming, so it is less likely to cause stomach acid and jitters. It has a low tannin content so it does not taste bitter like coffee. It also contains a number of other nutrients, including antioxidants, amino acids, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. Traditionally, yerba mate is drunk sweetened, from a gourd (mat´e) through a silver straw.

Love this tea as a feel good tea! No caffeine rush, just a wake up and calming I like it mixed with Rooibos and other herbs.
