Greetings and Happy New Year!

Some of you may wonder what the difference is between our matelatte mixes vs our regular brewing mates. Our matelatte mixes use the same high quality wild harvest base; however, we mill the product finer to be use in espresso machines for a more concentrated shot. This is much like espresso shots.

More than a decade ago, I invented our 3 blends we currently offer - Regular, Bengal Chai (our chai blend with increased ginger, chai spices) and our Shaman mix (lavender buds mixed in). All of these make wonderful drinks, especially for the winter or cooler months. Whether you're coming in from a day of skiing or skating, or simply coming in from the cold and need a pick me up, you can enjoy a great beverage that not only tastes superb, but also makes you feel great and YES is actually good for you! All these products were created to be used with an espresso machine. However, if you do not have one, you can simply use a french press to make a more concentrated shot.

If Using an Espresso Machine: (using any of our matelatte mixes: traditional, bengal chai, shaman)

Fill your porta filter up 3/4 ( do not tamp) this leaves room for the yerba to expand ( you can use a single or double porta filter)
brew a single or double shot ( 2 or 4 oz of liquid)
Steam your favorite milk or milk like beverage ( 4-6 oz)
Add 1 .5 oz of vanilla syrup ( sugar or sugar free) or any combination of clear syrup you wish.

If Using a French Press: (btw, the 8-cup is 20% off this month too!)

Measure 2-4 tablespoons of matelatte mix ( any flavor) to make 4 cups ( you can use more if you want a more concentrated shot) . You will be using 2 oz of mate liquid to make your drink
Steam your milk or milk like beverage. ( 4-6 oz)
Add your syrup for flavor. ( 1 - 1.5 oz , or to taste)

We've included here some of our favorite matelatte recipes. You won't believe how great something can taste and actually be good for you. For those who are watching calorie intake - no need to worry. All of these 8 oz drinks are no more than 100 calories. How great is that?!!


Smiling Tiger:
2oz of brewed Beganl chai matelatte
4-6 oz of your favorite steamed beverage
1 oz of vanilla syrup, or to taste (Tyrani syrup , can be purchased at most super markets)

Angry Tiger:
Same as above
Add 1 tablespoon of Dagoba drinking chocolate with chili and cinnamon (xocolatl - can be found in most health food stores)
One can use any drinking chocolate with chili.

Shaman Matelatte:
2 oz of brewed Shaman matelatte (lavender buds)
4-6 oz of your favorite steamed beverage
1 oz of vanilla syrup or to taste. (one can also use sugar free )
or 1.5 oz of white chocolate syrup or powder.

Traditional Matelatte:
2 oz of brewed matelatte (Traditional)
4-6 oz of favorite steamed beverage
1.5 oz of any syrup you wish, vanilla is most used, but one can try the following combos: chocolate and mint, chocolate and hazelnut, or any combo you might like.

If you have a recipe you'd like to share with us, please send it in and we'll post our favorite next month, deadline January 31st. The winner gets a free 14oz bag ( loose) or 1lb bag ( tea bags) flavor of your choice.
