spiced mate

spiced mate

Brazilian toasted mate blended with spices and citrus peels to add a little zest to an energizing brew. We find it perfect for chilly days, by the fire or iced with milk and sugar for when you crave a sweet treat. Please note that all Mate varieties contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap.

Steep at 150° for 3-5 minutes.

ingredients & lore

blended with toasted mate tea, cinnamon bark, natural spice flavor, orange peels and ginger root
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.
