From SerendipiTea

Yerba Mate, a ubiquitous S. American herb with deep cultural roots is native to Argentina, Brazil & Paraguay. The wild-grown holly shrub (Ilex paraguariensis), now formally cultivated, is found in the rainforest. Highly nutritious, loaded with anti-oxidants & numerous essential vitamins, like tea, Yerba Mate was used by indigenous people as food, beverage, medicine, a show of hospitality & even as currency. It contains matteine, a stimulant similar to caffeine yet much milder on the body with an energizing effect that doesn’t disrupt sleep or negatively react with the nervous system. Green Yerba Mate is grassy & herbaceous; Roasted is toasty & mellow. Steep the dried leaves in HOT rather than boiling water. Or, use a dried & hollowed, decorative Gourd as a vessel & sip through a Bombilla or filtered straw usually fashioned from stainless steel.

Intense grassy & highly stimulating! *Yerba Mate contains Matteine which is similar to Caffeine.

First Yerba Mate Ive had so not sure what to say about it, I will say this, it is definetly a different taste, close to a Black Tea but somewhere more near an Earl Grey, or so I would think, with my little experience with it. The Local Tea House, Manzanita News and Espresso has quite the variety of bagged and loose leaf teas, so I will have to try some of each. Overall I liked the Yerba Mate, didnt know what to expect though, so I will write a better review later.

It’s always difficult to write something about something when you’re new to it. I’ll agree with you – it’s definitely different. It’s something I’m trying to become more familiar with as well.
