yerba mate

yerba mate

Long hailed in South American countries as a healthy, energizing social beverage, Yerba Mate is finding a new audience in North America. Notable is its ability to provide energy without the jitteriness suffered by coffee imbibers.

Its taste has been compared to that of green tea but with a more herbaceous, grassy character. Enjoyed hot or iced it can also be mixed with fruit juices for an energizing punch.

Our Yerba Mate is an herbal beverage from Argentina that contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap.


Steep at 150° for 3-5 minutes.

fresh from origin

A species of holly, the leaves and twigs of the South American Yerba Mate plant have long been enjoyed as a steeped beverage traditionally brewed in a hollowed out gourd called a cuia or guampa and sipped with a specialized metal straw called a bomba or bombilla.

Culturally significant as an energizing social drink, Yerba Mate' is often shared at gatherings with family or friends, passing the gourd from person to person, no doubt ensuring lively conversation.

Toucans, the colorfully beaked birds more known for peddling fruit flavored breakfast cereals, long played a significant role in the dispersal of mate plant seeds. The seeds have a hard husk and needed a ride in the Toucan's digestive juices to sprout. Modern cultivation involved scarring the seedpods with sand to facilitate sprouting.
