Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Manufacture Process

This Yerba Mate Powder has been produced from some of the finest Ilex paraguariensis trees. The leaves are plucked and steeped for a few seconds in boiling water so that they lose some of their leathery toughness before being air dried out of the sun. Once completely dry they are screened and sorted through to make sure that this Yerba Mate powder is some of the best that can be bought.  After the leaves have been milled into a fine powder,  the powder is tested to make sure there are no heavy metals or other pollutants in each batch. The Yerba Mate powder is then made ready for shipping.

100% Pure Ilex paraguariensis powder

This powder is caffeinated so is it is recommended to not exceed 3 cups per day.
