Eco Teas Yerba Mate, Loose
Eco Teas unsmoked, pure leaf yerba maté contains nearly twice the antioxidant power of green tea. It comes from a small organic family farm in northeastern Argentina, where it is dried with a unique smoke-free drying process to achieve a smooth, clean flavor. The stems and powder are removed, so the loose yerba maté you buy from us is the most nutritious, energizing product possible.
Whether you are using a coffee-maker, a French press, a tea ball, or a traditional maté gourd and bombilla straw, EcoTeas loose yerba mate is the highest quality, best value product on the North American market.
First, moisten the herb with cool water. Steep in hot water (never boiling) water for 3-5 minutes. Strain and enjoy.
Steep directly in cold water for 10+ minutes. Strain, then add ice, citrus and/or a sweetener.
Use a French press, coffee maker, tea ball, strainer or espresso machine. Blend with herbs for added flavors and health benefits. Sip traditional-style with a bombilla (tea filter-straw).
Ingredients: 100% Organic Yerba Maté Leaf (Ilex Paraguariensis).
EcoTeas has its roots in friendship and hope. We began with the intention to work together to help improve the world. Initially, Stefan Schachter had the idea to start an organic yerba mate company. He learned about the tea in high school when he went on a work-relief project to Paraguay.
His vision for EcoTeas is a small, prosperous tea company that aligns with the planetary effort to build a peaceful and sustainable future. I believe that conscious business has a very important role in this effort. Our challenge is to design systems of agriculture, trade, industry, and investments that protect and restore our planetary resources. To do this, we must empower ourselves by organizing with other green businesses, environmental and political groups, activists, educators, and healers. I see EcoTeas emerging as a business leader in the movement back to the land. Together may we sip our teas in excellent health as we dream up a better world.
