The complex combination of antioxidant-rich, organic, roasted Yerba Maté and organic dark cocoa powder come together in this guilt-free, full-bodied dessert tea. Dark Chocolate also brims with antioxidants, and polyphenols, compounds which are known to lower blood pressure. These two nutrient powerhouses promote longevity and good health.Origin/Estate:
Mate is an herb, but it naturally contains caffeine. It is fermented and roasted, like many teas, but it contains about half the caffeine found in a comparably-sized cup of coffee (depending, of course, on the strength of your brew.)Tasting Notes:
Double Dark Chocolate Mate produces a deep, sweet, rich chocolaty brew. Its complex aroma and robust flavor are sure to satisfy both tea lovers and coffee defectors.Preparation & Serving:
Brew about 7 minutes for a lively cup. Add steamed milk for a rich, frothy latte.Interesting Anecdotes:
In the 19th century, Indians native to Latin America infused and imbibed herba mate to recover their strength, feed their bodies and cure their illnesses as the herb is said to have curative and stimulant properties, as well as vitamin and mineral elements. There it is made into a thick paste and drunk out of a hollowed-out gourd through a tube called a bombilla which has a filter at one end to screen out the sediment. Today, it is cultivated extensively in Argentina where mate drinking is an all-night social event.
