I got a few free sample tea bags the last time I ordered Yerba Mate.  All the herbs in each bag are familiar to me except for the third ingredient "Catuaba Bark".  Is this ok for me to try?  The full list of ingredients per each tea bag is as follows:  Yerba Mate, Yerba Mate Extract, Catuaba Bark, Stevia and Almonds.  The product of called EZ Energy Plus from Itapua Trading Corporation.  Website:  http://www.YerbaMate.us  I love Yerba Mate but am still looking for a stronger brew.  This is the first time I'm trying this Company's tea:  Rosamonte Especial, Suave and Traditional.  All are advertised as having strong flavor and character.  I'll let you know what I think after I try them all.

The ingredients can be looked at individually to determine the suitability of the teas as a whole.

Catuba bark is unlisted and therefore treated as a neutral, assuming you have no bad reactions or so on. I have not looked at that particular ingredient more closely to see if there are any obvious benefits or detriments.

Lloyd...thank you.  I have not found any detriments when I reasearched it. I'll try a little bit of the tea (not the full bag)...if I have no adverse reaction to it, I'll try more until I can confidently use the full bag.

Catuaba bark comes from two trees, the Trichilia catigua and Erythroxylum catuaba, in the rain forests of Brazil. These trees are used interchangeably for similar conditions in traditional Brazilian herbal lore. Tribal songs have been created in honor of catuaba because of its popularity for thousands of years among men in Brazil as an aphrodisiac.

Let me know how that works for you!
