Green Yerba Mate
is nothing more satisfying and enjoyable then the fresh taste of hand
crafted, loose-leaf herbal tea. These delicious and nourishing beverages
make a great compliment to our mornings, a pick me up in the afternoons
and an integral part of our relaxation in the evenings.
Unlike conventional, finely cut tea found in mass manufactured tea bags, loose herbal tea is fresh, fragrant, tasty and longer lasting.
Store these teas in a cool, dry place out of direct light.
The health provoking qualities of herbs are present in tisanes and the vast selection of ingredients used in the tisanes is quite overwhelming. Here is a small sample of herbs, fruits and roots found in our herbal teas: angelica, anise, chamomile, coriander seeds, lavender, lemongrass, mate, mint, rooibos, rosehip, thyme, dried strawberries, apples, raspberries, passion fruit, orange peel and many more.
For centuries people have taken their medicinal plants and steeped them in hot water to draw out their healing properties. We offer a selection of herbal teas, such as chamomile, rooibos and mate that are well known for their medicinal qualities, as well as superb blends such as Evening Jazz and Blue Rhapsody that will alleviate the stresses of the day.
How to Make a Perfect Cup:
Herbal tisanes are prepared with 1 tsp of herbal tea infused in a cup of boiling water. Herbal blends don't turn bitter when over steeped, but we recommend steeping the tea for 2 minutes using a tea ball, infuser, or a tea press. Feel free to add some sweetener to your tea, but remember that dairy products curd.
Making your own herbal tea
The standard way to make an infusion, unless otherwise specified, is to pour a cup of boiling water over the material to be infused, let it stand for 5 minutes, strain it, and drink it.
