Healthy herbs, rooibos, honeybush, decaf tea, and yerba mate.
How long does Yerba Mate stay fresh? I just got in around 3 pounds of various brands and am planning on storing them in air tight jars and was just wondering...

I want to say 2 or 3 years. I can't really remember and don't really want to research it at the moment. I do know that it can keep significantly longer than black tea (1 yr), though.

The bottom of Rosamonte says to finish within 2 years, which may or may not be true. I have a few that I opened more than a year ago that still seems fresh.

Yerba has a ridiculous shelf life. I think the devil is somehow involved.

Each of my packages are in an air tight container, or you could purchase more just to keep the fresh flavor. I have seen expires printed onto the bags of mate, they were roughly 12 to 18 months, from what I must assume was a harvest.
