KRAUS - Silvestre

CHF 9.50 VAT included


Traditional Kraus brand Yerba Maté, with stems and leaf powder, blended with peppermint. Peppermint is often used in Argentina as an addition to mate, for its refreshing and pleasant taste.

The drying process used is what sets the Yerbas of this brand apart. It's called "indirect heat". Instead of drying the leaves with hot air directly from a fire (as is the case with most yerba maté), a fire is used to heat air that is never in direct contact with the fire, and it is this hot air that dries the leaves. The yerba produced therefore contains no substances derived from the smoke of a fire and has no smoky taste. In Spanish, this drying technique is called "sin humo".
