< p> Green mate or black mate, what's the difference?

Herbalist infuses green mate leaves for their very sweet taste ; these unroasted leaves lack those smoky "cold ash" notes that may repel some. On the contrary, the discreetly toasted flavor of our Duo of Green Mate with lemon or passion juice is very refreshing.

In green mate, the micronutrients are better preserved because the leaves are dried but not roasted.
