Tea leaves

History in a few words

In Brazil, cultivation of maté is a particularly ancient ritual. Like in Argentina or Uruguay, this drink comes from the Guarani people. Belonging to the holly family, the yerba mate plant – also nicknamed Brazilian tea or Jesuit tea – is heated in order to halt oxidation. Next, the leaves are finely chopped before being consumed in a calabash with the help of a bombilla straw. In Brazil, “chimarrão” is the term used by Brazilians to refer to this drink.

Tea varieties

Though a producer of some black and green teas, Brazil truly excels in the production of maté. An example: Organic Maté Verde Chimarrão, a particularly round and fresh maté with very smooth vegetal notes.
