Naturally Occurring Nutrients and Antioxidants!

Quite a few folks brew their kombucha exclusively using Yerba Tate. We recommend brewing with at least 25% real tea 

The average infusion of mate contains
Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex
Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus
Additional Compounds: Fatty Acids, Chlorophyll, Flavonols, Polyphenols, Trace Minerals, Antioxidants, Pantothenic Acid and 15 Amino Acids.

According to Dr. Mowry, Director of Mountainwest Institute of Herbal Sciences, one group of investigators from the Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific Society concluded that Yerba Mate contains "practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life." They focused especially on Pantothenic Acid, remarking that it is "rare to find a plant with so much of this significant and vital nutrient. It is indeed difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to Mate in nutritional value."

Suggested usage

Simply measure a half ounce portion and splash with cool water to help preserve nutrients, then steep in hot (but not boiling) water for 3-4 minutes. Some folks add honey or a splash of lemon In coffee-makers use 4 tbsp per 12 cup pot. 

For kombucha brewing many folks use straight Mate (instead of tea) We recommend to add 25-50% mate to regular tea (Camellia Sinensis) and seep to desired strength. The combination helps maintain the kombucha strain.
