1 x Gourd Straw

1 x Calabash Gourd Bowl

1 x 60g Pouch Brazilian Mate Tea

Steeped in the South American zest for life.

Mate is made from the green leaves of a type of holly known as yerba mate in Brazil. Naturally stimulating, mate is also known across the South American region as the ‘beverage of the gods’. This Brazilian tea is equivalent to coffee in terms of caffeine, but it doesn’t deliver the jitters.

Caffeine class: High

How it tastes: Subtly sweet and smoky, with a fresh, earthy taste.

To serve one: Heat 250mls of water to 99°C. Add 1 heaped tsp of Brazilian tea, allow to infuse for 5-10 minutes
and enjoy.

Why it’s special: With a stimulating effect that lasts longer than coffee, this invigorating tea from Brazil really hits the spot. A short infusion time concentrates the stimulating effect, while a longer one weakens it. To reduce the caffeine level, steep for 10 seconds, throw the water away and brew again as normal.

Tea Type: Herbal

Ingredients: Brazilian mate

Origin: Brazil

    I know what is drinking the Mate tea ( known in Brazil as Cha Mate). Very nice as well when drinking as a cool drink with lemon. They sell on the beaches all over, mainly in Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana beach. Everyone should try it! I love it. When young, my family used to buy it in little wooden boxes with a sliding top. .The toasted taste is its trade mark. No other tea equals it. Try it and I can assure you will enjoy it. But try the tea without MILK.

    A pleasant change.
