- If that wasn’t enough, this special little shrub is jammed packed full of goodness and in 1964 The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society were so interested in this healthy source of vitamins they did a thorough study of the plant’s properties
- Yerba mate (pronounced yerba mah-tey) is native to South America where it’s been used for centuries by native tribes who believe in its ability to naturally energise, focus and rejuvenate the body
- This is an Amazonian secret energy brew - it may smell like creosote, but it works like magic.
- They concluded "it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value" and that yerba mate contains "practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life." Wowsers, that’s some statement – no wonder teapigs Nick, Becky, James and Reggie adore this blend!

Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water.
Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006. They met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. And the more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realise something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born.
Nick describes himself as a tea evangelist (although much nicer than those shouty ones on American TV). Louise, an experienced tea taster who has travelled the world tasting teas, is a self-confessed tea addict (not seeking rehab).
Glorious pump alley, brentford is the home of teapigs, a tea company founded in November 2006. ‘no airs. no graces. just fine tea’ sums up the teapigs world.
teapigs offer a range of top-notch quality teas and infusions with absolutely no nasties! Everything from amazing black tea to the most chocolatey, chocolate tea, herbal infusions, full flavour fruits & leaves and super power matcha green tea.
