Colon 90-60-90 is a combination of yerba, field mint, green tea and horsetail, known for their antioxidant and tonic properties. Colon 90-60-90 is made in a typical "Paraguayan" fine grind with a high dust content, but with the presence of atypically large stems.
The taste and aroma are very smoky for a classic Paraguayan yerba. The addition of catuaba also adds some harshness to the flavor, and it also serves as an aphrodisiac and enhances the invigorating properties of this drink.
Indega Classica mate is a classic variety from Indega S.A. As befits a Paraguayan mate, the Indega Classica is perfect for both a traditional hot ceremony and terere. The product has a classic Paraguayan grind, not entirely uniform, so a rather coarse fraction is found in the composition.
La Rubia, a family business, produces a limited amount of this organic yerba with only twenty employees. Velvety layered textures of tobacco, cherry, dark chocolate, and tart make this a gourmet and sophisticated yerba. Mate La Rubia Organica has a quality "Paraguayan grind" with an ideal ratio of leaves, stems and dust. Although this yerba has the typical bitterness and astringency of all Paraguayan varieties, it also has a slight floral flavor that distinguishes it from other brands.
