Heralded as the new “it” drink, Organic Roasted Mate Tea may be just what you are looking for. Many feel that Organic Roasted Yerba Mate loose leaf tea provides the benefits of caffeine without the downsides - the jitters, the crash and upset stomach.
For those who are caffeine averse or who do not metabolize caffeine well yet still want the positive qualities of a strong caffeinated drink, Roasted Yerba Mate will fit the bill. It is usually a morning drink since it has more stimulants than other teas or even coffee. Not surprisingly, it is an excellent afternoon pick-me-up as well because the brew is energy-giving without the “crash” of coffee because the stimulant substances are released into the body gradually, producing sustained alertness, clear thought and increased focus. But mental acuity is not the only health benefit of Mate Herbal Tea. Antioxidant (chlorogenic acid) and vitamin C rich as well as gentle on the stomach, this tea has beneficial effects on the central nervous system and there is some compelling evidence it may curtail hypertension and decrease potential liver cirrhosis, among other health benefits.
Roasted Yerba Mate loose leaf tea may have rich health benefits without many of the downsides of coffee or tea rich in caffeine, but it also has a rich history. From a plant indigenous to Brazil, Argentina and other South American countries, the roasting process of Mate distinguishes this Herbal "tea" from other teas. It is this roasting process reminiscent of a great coffee bean that produces a coffee-like, nutty flavor with toasty caramel notes much like black tea. Rich and smooth, Yerba Mate is traditionally drunk in South America from a specific gourd, known as a “mate,” and through a straw. So revered is this drink for its flavor and therapeutic properties, natives call it “the drink of the Gods.” Now, it can be steeped or brewed in a tea infuser and served warm rather than hot. Coffee drinkers everywhere are laying down their coffee mugs and are being converted to Mate drinkers by this fine, strong, and beneficial tea. Get to know this "Gaucho Tea", order some today.
I have been ordering from Good Life Teas for a while now, and I absolutely love my yerba!
Our Yerba Mate has quickly become a best seller! Who would have thought an herbal could provide caffeine and delicious taste?!? Thanks for your review, Brian.
Absolutely love the Roasted Yerba Mate. It is a delightful change from my morning coffee
Yerba Mate has gained the attention of many former coffee drinkers. Because of its popularity, we can hardly keep it in stock. Sip on!
I have recently quit coffee after discovering Good Life Tea, and the only issue I was having was headaches due to lack of caffeine. Susan gave a sample of this to me on my latest of many trips, and it is WONDERFUL! It has a kick that doesn't leave you feeling tired later, and it made my headache disappear within the hour. Also, it tastes good too! I will be buying more of this, I think I have found the perfect first cup of morning tea. The added health benefits are a plus too! See you soon, Susan and Rob! Thank You!!!
Yerba Mate's caffeine profile is a great solution for tea lovers who want an energized feeling similar to coffee. So glad you are feeling better and like the taste of mate! See you soon, Tracy!
