Mate is a wild shrub from Argentina that makes a delicious, flavorful tea. Often consumed in a gourd with a filtered straw called "bombilla" and shared among friends, these herbal teas are full of bold flavors. Traditional Mate is rich, robust, and balanced with a complex earthy mate body and a smooth mellow finish. Yerba Mate has the "strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate" all in one beverage. Mate is high in caffeine.
