Chai Blend Organic Yerba Mate, Loose Leaf - Oregon Yerba Mate

Chai Blend Organic Yerba Mate, Loose Leaf

Loose Leaf Tea

Just like traditional chai, except yerba Mate is the base instead of black tea.

The Chai Blend is a twist on a traditional Indian drink, chai mate is a delicious blend of yerba mate and Indian spices that help enhance immunity and ward off infection. Best drank with your favorite nut milk and honey or agave nectar.

Organic Yerba Mate contains nearly 200 active chemical compounds, including numerous vitamins and minerals, and 15 amino acids. Yerba Mate contains a lot less caffeine than coffee (about half), and does have xanthines, theobromine and theophylline. These are stimulants without any side effects like jitters, upset stomach, and stress or anxiety. Yerba Mate is a great substitute for your morning coffee drink, but also a great addition to your daily diet.
