Looking for an all natural Chai with an extra kick? Look no further. Roasted Mate Chai with its heady blend of Brazilian mate and rich spices. The kick comes from the caffeine content of mate, sometimes called matteine, which is generally higher than that of black tea.

Extra Info:

Mate has been a staple beverage throughout Brazil since before the arrival of the first Europeans. Early natives harvested, and later cultivated Matte, in some cases developing rituals for its consumption. Nowadays, Mate is normally consumed in a special hollow gourd sipped through a stainless steel straw, frequently elaborately decorated and quite beautiful, passed from person to person.

The refined method in which Mate is consumed starkly contrasts with the way in which Indian Chai is normally enjoyed. In India, Chai Wallahs, or sellers, ply their trade in dusty truck stops, bus terminals, packed passenger trains, you name it. The tea is blended with an array of spices, prepared in great cauldrons with fresh whole milk, and ultimately served in small clay cups that patrons will often simply discard in the street. No trip to India is complete without a cup or two!

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 7-May minutes.

Ingredients:

Roasted Argentinian mate, ginger root, cinnamon, green cardamom and cinnamon, ginger and vanilla flavor,

Origin:

I was expecting to get a chai drink drink that tasted a little bit like roasted mate, but instead got a legitimate Roasted Mate Chai. Highly recommend for just about anyone, but especially those american mate drinkers looking to mix things up. Very fairly priced, and doesn't ruin mate the way teavana. You can actually taste the mate, but yet I could definitely see this appealing to a larger variety of people. Well done NM Tea Co.

I'm not the biggest fan of mate, but this roasted blend is by far my favorite. It doesn't have any of the "green" flavors of the regular mate, and it's not as astringent as regular black tea. Roasting seems to blend it all together for a strong, smooth taste that we will buy again.

It's a very smooth blend that smells wonderful and really gives me the caffeine boost I need.

Delicious and robust, this mate both stimulates and soothes. I find it superior to the (more expensive) mate I've purchased at Teavana.
