Mocha Nut Yerba Mate
This is a great blend of Brazilian toasted Mate with real Chocolate, Hazelnut flavor, and Marigold flowers.
Mocha Nut Mate is an herbal beverage from Argentina that contains caffeine, however, this type of caffeine does not have side effects, such as jitters or anxiety (as the caffeine in tea or coffee)
The mellow chicory-like character of our Brazilian toasted mate is a perfect platform for a favorite indulgence: chocolate! Add a bit of hazelnut and you have the perfect treat. Great straight up or enhanced with cream and sugar. If you're a fan of chocolate mate teas, we invite you to give this formula a try.
Please note that all Mate varieties contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap.
Ingredients: toasted mate tea, dark chocolate chips, natural hazelnut flavor, natural chocolate flavor and marigold flowers.
A species of holly, the leaves and twigs of the South American Yerba Mate plant have long been enjoyed as a steeped beverage traditionally brewed in a hollowed out gourd called a cuia or guampa and sipped with a specialized metal straw called a bomba or bombilla.
Culturally significant as an energizing social drink, Yerba Mate' is often shared at gatherings with family or friends, passing the gourd from person to person, no doubt ensuring lively conversation.
Toucans, the colorfully beaked birds more known for peddling fruit flavored breakfast cereals, long played a significant role in the dispersal of mate plant seeds. The seeds have a hard husk and needed a ride in the Toucan's digestive juices to sprout. Modern cultivation involved scarring the seedpods with sand to facilitate sprouting.
