Yerba Mate is a South American herb that offers an incredible running start for kapha in the morning. Stimulating, energizing, focusing, slightly bitter and astringent in nature, yerba mate is chock-full of valuable vitamins (including A, C, B1 and B2), trace minerals (including chromium, iron and potassium), and antioxidants. It’s often celebrated as a weight-management tea and tastes great with other kapha-pacifying herbs, such as tulsi, ginger, lemon, and cinnamon.

Ingredients

  • 1 C water
  • 1 tea bag or 1-2 T loose yerba mate

Preparation

Boil water. Let it cool for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over the “tea” and steep for 3 to 5 minutes.

If you’re using loose tea, place 1 to 2 T in a French press, tea strainer, or tea ball infuser. Moisten the mate first with a bit of cool water to preserve its vital nutrients. Then add hot, not boiling, water. Steep for 4 to 8 minutes, strain and enjoy.
