Loose leaf herbal tea

Loose herbal tea in 40 grams bag

It was known in Europe through the Jesuits at the time of evangelization in South America, and in fact, Jesuit Tea is one of the names attributed to Ilex Paraguaiensis. The drink, obtained by processing the leaves, is called Rava mate in Portuguese or yerba mate in Spanish, contains caffeine and has a tonic and diuretic effect. The habit of drinking Mate is widespread throughout South America. Traditionally it is prepared in mate, an emptied gourd, and drunk through a straw with a filter called "bombilla". Mate is prepared by repeatedly adding boiling water and sugar to the leaves. It can also be prepared by infusion, with the name of Mate Cocido, or it can also be served cold, with the name of Tererè in Paraguay.
