500g Pajarito Organica
Pajarito [pa-ha-ri-toe] Organic is a delicious industry benchmark certified by one of the strictest authorities on the subject, IMO (Switzerland). This badge isn't easy to get... Pajarito's organic yerba mate plantations simulate the patterns and features of a natural ecosystem. They are home to a diverse circle of indigenous life which all play a role in creating wholesome, dark and juicy yerba mate leaves that have more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals than most. This yerba is a mild and woody with citrus notes that should be served at 70°C. The taste may remind you of a tea pot of roasted suuringtjies (Bermuda buttercups). It is a user-friendly coarsely ground yerba with stems (“palos”) and low powder content. You can use it for tereré (iced mate) too which we recommend in the summer time.
- French press: Use 1 flat table spoon per cup to prepare yerba mate in french press (coffee plunger). Use hot water (not boiling) of about 70 deg C, and allow to brew for 1-2mins. This 500g pack makes approx. 70 cups using this method.
- Traditional (with bomba): see video below, how to prepare traditional mate.
