Mate was first used by the Guarani Indians who believed it could cleanse and heal the spirit. Now, millions enjoy it in South America, particularly in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. Our Mate is grown on a 100% organic, sustainable, three generation family farm in Argentina.
The PlantMate (llex Paraguariensis) is an evergreen plant of the holly family (Aquifoliaceae). The plant can reach heights of 10-12 meters, but is generally pruned to about 4-6 meters. Although the plant does produce small flowers and fruit, only the distinctive oval shaped leaves and stems are plucked for processing.
Mate ConstituentsMate contains vitamins (A, B1, B2, C and E), mineral salts, 15 amino acids and high levels of antioxidant. Its chemical constituents also include alkaloids (such as caffeine). Mate is known to help cope with stress and is beneficial for the nervous and immune systems.
Flavor ProfileBittersweet, cooling, woody with lasting sweetness. Will provide at least 3-4 infusions.
Gourd & BombillaThe Mate Gourd and Bombilla are traditional vessels used for enjoying Yerba Mate. The Gourd is filled one-third full with the leaves and, after adding water, the brew is enjoyed by sipping through the bombilla. Designs and shapes vary from region to region.
Terere. A refreshing ice drink
Terere is more popular than hot mate in tropical South America. It can be prepared by using flavored iced water instead of hot.
Fill a pitcher with water and ice then add your favorite sweetener (agave syrup, maple syrup, or unrefined cane sugar) and fresh lime. (For convenience, organic bottled lemonade or limeade can be used instead.) Fill a small glass cup with organic Yerba Mate, pour the sweet lime water on the Mate and sip with a bombilla.
