Rio Amazon Yerba Mate 90 Teabags

Rio Amazon Yerba Mate 90 Teabags
 
The traditional tea of Southern South America, Maté is brewed from the leaves and stem of the Ilex paraguariensis tree.
 
Unlike other teas, the leaves and stem are exposed to flames immediately after harvesting; a process known as sapeco. This is to quickly lessen the moisture but seal in the abundant vitamins (A, B, C, and E), minerals (magnesium, iron, calcium, riboflavin, niacin) and polyphenols. The leaves then undergo a second drying step but remain green due to the flame-drying action.
 
After the sapeco and drying, the green Maté is finely cut and put into unbleached teabags. Its taste is often described as green, grassy and herbaceous, with a slightly smoky flavour, and not unlike green tea.
 
Usage
 
Infuse 1 teabag in a cup of boiling water for 5-10 minutes. Sweeten with honey or sugar as desired. 3 cups per day are recommended, at least half an hour before meals.
