Yerba Mate Gift SetRegular price $70.00
Yerba's growing popularity as a coffee substitute in North America is likely due to the caffeine content. There is comparatively more caffeine in a cup of Yerba than in most teas. This drink is an excellent choice for a consumer looking to boost focus and reduce fatigue.
The vessel used for Yerba, traditionally a cured, hollow gourd, is known as the mate (pronounced maté). This holds the yerba, a complex word which translates roughly to ‘herb’ in English. A straw crafted with a filter helps to strain the loose infusion, and is usually called a bombilla. Often, a single prepared Yerba Mate is ritually passed around a group who have gathered to relax and socialize, much as you would gather for tea or coffee.
