From The Tao of Tea

Native Name: Yerba Mate

Origin: Iguaçu Valley, Brazil

Plucking Season: Summer

Introduction: The forests of the Iguaçu Valley are ideal both in climate and soil for the best Yerba Mate. The Iguaçu, meaning ‘big water’, is home to an amazing array of flora and fauna as well as the breathtaking Iguaçu Falls.

Yerba Mate
Yerba Mate is native to the region around the rivers Paraná, Paraguay, Uruguay and their tributaries. The herb was first used by the Guaraní, an important indigenous tribal people who traditionally prepare the beverage in a gourd (a ‘cuia’ or ‘mate’) and sip through a filtered straw (a ‘bomba’ or ‘bombilla’).

Yerba and Health
Similar to tea and dark chocolate, Yerba Mate contains the xanthines theobromine and caffeine known to increase mental alertness, focus and wakefulness. The herb is also rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals and has been used in Guaraní remedies for centuries. Traditionally it has been used as a diuretic, a digestive aid, and to ease asthmatic symptoms. Recent studies have shown Yerba Mate to contain a significant amount of antioxidants.

Flavor Profile: Cooling, clear, bitter sweet flavor notes.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Yerba Mate

Certified Organic by: Quality Assurance International (QAI)

My iPhone is now my iPod and my iPod Shuffle has been forcing me to be on a Duran Duran kick…so…when I saw this one from Tao of Tea I had to add this video for you!
Now…on to my tea tasting…

This is a fairly standard and good ole stand bye for a Yerba Mate! It’s sweet, fresh, and clean!

This is tasty for a plain(er) Yerba Mate! The song from Duran Duran while sipping doesn’t hurt the process either…

I challenge you!!!!

That’s RIGHT…I am challenging anyone who wants to play today! Pair your teas today with songs – if you can – and post a video along with them! Sort of like a word association type thing…does a tea remind you of a song? Why? Does it share the same name as your tea/song? Tell us! Or does the video go hand in hand with the tea some way? Be as creative or as random as you wish! I can’t wait to see who plays a long today!!!
