🌿 Yerba Maté 🌿
The health drink of the summer.
Yerba Maté is a shrub from South America and is stimulating for the body and mind. It provides nutrients to the brain and contains pantothenic acid, which stimulates metabolism and helps the body convert food into energy. Pantothenic acid also regulates hormone production and stimulates the adrenal system!
Yerba Maté tastes earthy, grassy and bright. Because of its delicate nature, Yerba Maté can't be steeped in boiling water because it can actually burn the leaves which results in a bitter or ashy taste.

Add 1-2 teaspoons of tea in 8 oz of hot water for 3-5 minutes.
To make it iced, do the same thing, but instead of filling your cup all the way with water, just fill it halfway. Let it steep, then add ice the rest of the way to get a flavorful cup.
Drink before exercising or as your daily caffeine boost!
