There’s only a handful of yerba mate companies that take all measures to remove smoke contact from the mate production. Kraus is one of them. Recently visiting the factory, I saw firsthand the care and appreciation for their craft, spanning over 3 generations of dedicated mate farmers.
Using custom-engineered machinery and warm air from natural gas to produce this smokeless yerba mate – naturally aged for 9 months – you’re able to appreciate a clean, vibrant, and pleasantly green-tasting premium yerba mate.
This Pure Leaf version has significantly less stems which increases the body of the mate, giving it a more robust, strong-green-tea element. It’s great alone, but also does very well in blends. Try adding orange/lemon peel or mint for extra zest.
