  • Yerba Mate

    Shade-grown yerba mate with all the qualities mate should provide; grassy and fresh-tasting, a natural energy booster that won’t jolt you down later, like coffee or espresso.  Yerba mate contains matteine, similar to caffeine, and this is the national beverage of Argentina, sipped continuously throughout the day from ‘portable bombilla-like kits’ in some countries.

    Serving Suggestion:  Serving the traditional way, in a gourd with a bombilla (straw) or simply brew like tea and enjoy in your favorite mug.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 3-4 minutes at 180F.  Let beverages cool to approximately 170F before consuming.

    Ingredients:  Yerba mate, sourced from a certified organic, Fair Trade supplier.

  • Darjeeling

    The Darjeeling region of India yields much gentler tea than Assam–lighter, nutty, with nuances accompanying each ‘flush’ or picking.  As seasons pass, the infusion with each picking becomes bolder and yet retains the essence of why Darjeeling is known as ‘the champagne of tea‘..truly a delicacy even with later flushes, accompanying the perceptible earthiness of Indian teas.  A toasty essence combines to give a lovely finish.  This is an autumnal flush Darjeeling.

    Serving Suggestion:   Serve black or with milk & sweetener.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 4 minutes at 190-195F

    Ingredients: (Autumnal flush) Darjeeling black tea
