Yerba Mate' Tea is made from brewing the leaves of a holly-like tree found in South America.

Yerba Mate is praised for having almost as much caffeine as coffee, but with the feel-good chemicals of tea and coffee as well. It is high in antioxidants, contains 24 vitamins and minerals, and 15 amino acids.

Yerba mate isn't acidic like coffee and is much lower in tannins than tea, so people find it less bitter and more enjoyable to drink.

The caffeine content of yerba mate will vary based on brewing time and quality of the product.

The caffeine data was provided by the Guayaki brand using their 3 g tea bag steeped for 5-10 minutes in 8 fl oz of hot water.
