The Plant

Mate (Ilex Paraguariensis) is an evergreen plant of the holly (family Aquifoliaceae). The plant can reach heights of 10-12 meters, but is generally pruned at about 4-6 meters. Although the plant does produce small flowers and fruit, only the distinct oval shaped leaves and stems are plucked for processing.

Mate Constituents

Mate contains vitamins (A, B1, B2, C and E), mineral salts, 15 amino acids and high level of antioxidants. Its chemical constituents also include alkaloids (caffeine). Mate is known to help cope with stress and is beneficial for the nervous and immune systems.

Flavor Profile

Cooling, clear, bitter sweet flavor notes. Will provide at least 3-4 re-infusions.

Gourd & Bombilla

The 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 by the region.

Terere. A refreshing ice drink

Terere is more popular than hot mate in tropical South America. It can be prepared like mate, by using flavored iced water instead of hot.

Suggested Use

Fill a pitcher with water and ice. Add your favorite sweetener (agave syrup, maple syrup, or unrefined cane sugar) and fresh lime into the pitcher. (Organic bottled lemonade or limeade can be used instead). Fill a small glass cup with Organic Mate and sip with a bombilla.
