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.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas Logo

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
