All of our teas are now labelled with a freshness date; posted in the yerba description. Almost all of the tea we sell comes stamped from the source with a freshness date--either an envasado (packaged) or vencimiento (sell-by) date. Yerba mate aficionados feel that, depending upon how it is stored, yerba mate is best when used within two years of being packaged. Of course nothing bad will happen to you when you drink old tea, and some people say it is fine two years even beyond the due date... however we feel that freshness and flavor is paramount in enjoying a good mate! The Yerba Mate Tea Gourd never sells expired tea and now you can be even more assured of our dedication to flavor!
All teas will be labelled as soon as possible after stocking.
