Dragonfly Tea launch South American Mate Tea.

We are excited to announce the launch of a new tea in our Dragonfly Speciality range. Mate (ma-teh) tea is one of South America’s most popular drinks. Long prized by Argentina’s hardy gauchos (cowboys) for its ability to revive and focus the mind, mate was believed to be the drink of the gods by tribesmen of Southern Brazil. This is a really invigorating brew and has a distinctly earthy taste which is perfectly balanced with fresh green tea and a hint of lemongrass. Like all our Speciality teas it is certified organic. It’s also GM-free and free from artificial additives, preservatives and colourings.

You can buy our Green Gaucho Mate from the Dragonfly Tea Shop.
