I love plain yerba mate tisanes, and this brand is no different.
The leaves are all broken into tiny pieces, like the picture shows. They are very thin and brittle.
I’ve never learned how to make yerba mate the traditional way, so I just make this like I would any other herbal tisane. I steep the leaves western style in near-boiling water for six minutes.
The liquor comes out strong and somewhat spicy. The flavors remind me of hay or dried grass mixed with spices. It is hard to describe but it tastes wonderful, in my opinion.
Flavors: Grass, Hot Hay, Spicy
