“EL HACHERO” YERBA MATE – 1.10″ Lbs / 500 Grams Bag
When you open the package and feel “El Hachero” (The Axeman) smell, you may think “this is another commercial and regular yerba mate”. However, the flavor surprises a lot; VERY personal, quite dry, walnut-like, medium intensity. A first and quick impression is plain bitterness but what is strange and perhaps most striking about “El Hachero” is that the last note is decidedly sweet and dry. As the sips go by, a nice and gentle sweetness (not overwhelming like the one you may find in “Playadito” and “Amanda“) takes over. A very complex and unique yerba mate.The grinding is balanced, medium sized leaves, dust, not too much sticks and occasional big leaves.
-Remember each Yerba deserves a personal experience. What’s good for one mate drinker may not be the same for another. If you are new to this world, you will get to play around with many Yerba flavors and brands-
Organic yerbas have no pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. Also, they do not have artificial colors, flavors or ingredients of any kind.
Normally the aging process for the organic yerba is longer than the regular therefore the flavor and aroma is better. It also makes the yerba mate less bitter.
The packaging material that is used is organic in itself as the paper that is used is recycled and biodegradable. The ink is water based.
