In the Know

With a taste and aroma that is even strongly reminiscent of a fresh cup of coffee, our Yerba Maté Dark Roast offers a superb beverage for anyone looking for a bold tasting coffee alternative. Yerba maté originates from Brazil, where it is frequently enjoyed as a stimulating natural beverage. The roasted leaves add something special to the brew as well, adding a smoky richness to aroma and taste.

Interesting Notes About Yerba Maté

Although research remains inconclusive, it is believed that yerba maté does contain caffeine. One website claims that a single tablespoon of yerba maté provides 30 mg of caffeine. However, a majority of individuals who drink yerba maté have noted that they do not experience the side effects common to coffee, such as jitters, headaches, or upset stomach. Many caffeine-sensitive individuals switch from coffee for this reason.

It is thought that the reasoning behind yerba maté’s unique effects is not due to a different kind of caffeine, but due to the combination of caffeine and two other energizing chemicals found in yerba maté: theobromine and theophylline, both also found in Camellia sinensis (tea leaves) and dark chocolate. The balance of these three compounds provides an energy boost that requires less caffeine for a stimulating effect.

In addition to being an alternative for those who are looking for a substitute for caffeine, yerba maté also provides polyphenols, minerals, saponins, and antioxidants, making it a healthier alternative to many other stimulating drinks.

Why is Yerba Maté Categorized as an Herb?

Wikipedia proclaims: “Yerba maté translates to ‘mate herb,’ where maté is originally from Quechua mati, a complex word with multiple meanings.”

While yerba maté information is still debated, we list our yerba maté beverages in both the “Herbal Teas” and “Specialty Teas” sections, indicating that though it is considered to contain caffeine, it also is considered an herb.

*Please note: as this tea contains barley, this is not a gluten free product.
