Shanti Yerba Mate (Green), Organic
Yerba mate green refers to a variation of yerba mate, a traditional South American herbal tea known for its invigorating properties. Yerba mate is made from the leaves and twigs of the Ilex paraguariensis plant, and it has been consumed for centuries in countries like Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Brazil.
Yerba mate green specifically refers to a type of yerba mate that is made from leaves that have been dried with minimal to no aging or oxidation. This minimal processing helps to preserve the green color of the leaves and may result in a slightly different flavor profile compared to more aged yerba mate varieties.
Green yerba mate is known for its fresh and grassy flavor, with a slight bitterness and herbal undertones. It tends to have a lighter and more delicate taste compared to aged yerba mate, which can have a richer and more robust flavor.
Like traditional yerba mate, yerba mate green contains natural caffeine and a range of beneficial compounds, including antioxidants and vitamins. It is often enjoyed for its energizing and stimulating effects, providing a natural source of caffeine without the jitteriness associated with coffee.
As with any herbal tea or caffeinated beverage, it's important to consume yerba mate green in moderation and consider any personal sensitivities or health conditions you may have. If you have specific concerns, it's best to consult with a healthcare professional.
