Welcome to Churchill's Fine Teas!
Green Yerba Mate from Argentina is prepared by steeping dry leaves of the mate plant in hot water rather than in boiling water. It is consumed similar to a tea, more traditionally hot, but sometimes cold.
Ingredients: yerba mate.
Drinking mate with friends from a shared hollow gourd with a metal straw (a bombilla in Spanish, bomba in Portuguese) is a common social practice in Uruguay, Argentina, and southern Brazil among people of all ages.
Medicinal drink of ancient origins. High in vitamin C, an antioxidant considered weight loss tea. Can add to other teas as a caffeine boost.
Packaging: Our loose teas are sold by the ounce and are packaged in food-grade resealable bags.
