Product Description:

Ilex paraguariensis Yerba Maté has been enjoying a growing popularity in the US as a tea and nutritional supplement thanks to its effects including the uplifting strength of coffee, the health benefits of green tea, and the joy of chocolate. Attracting the attention of the scientific community, it's been shown that there is much truth to its claims! According to medical studies, tea made from the dried leaves and stems of the Yerba Maté plant has a vast number of health-promoting compounds. This South American native shares the holly genus, and has been used by indigenous peoples for generations. The plant is evergreen, easy to grow, and can be harvested continuously for its leaves and stems. Although it’s a sub-tropical plant, it's simple to cultivate in a container. In zones colder than 9, bring the plant indoors to a bright window during the cold months.

Yerba Maté plants ship at the end of April/beginning of May in 3 ½ inch pots. Order early for best availability. Detailed instructions are included with each order, and can be found below. Available only within the contiguous US.
