What Is Yerba Mate?

In 1515 The Spanish conquistadores found that the Argentine indigenous Guarani Indians were enjoying good health, vitality, longevity and using Yerba Mate as medicine, food and drink.  The Guarani also used Mate as a currency and considered this medicinal herb, as a jungle gift from the Gods.  Mati comes from the Quechua word meaning pumpkin or  Gourd  which is traditionally used to drink Mate tea.  Yerba means grass in Spanish, it can also mean pot or herb.

Yerba mate grows wild in the sub tropical jungles of South America.  Yerba mate   is made from brewing the naturally caffeinated, nourishing leaves of the South American Holly Tree  (Ilex paraguarenis)  which grows in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and Bolivia.  Yerba mate is a shade sub tropical natural plant which thrives in it's natural environment where it grows prolifically with high humidity and in the shade of the 10th to 30th parallel rainforest canopy.  Mate harvested naturally from wild plants is superior to farmed, sun grown Mate which requires 1500mm  (60 inches)  yearly rainfall.



Mate is the daily drink of choice for millions in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and Uruguay where it is sipped from a Mate Gourd through a hollow tube called the  Bombilla.  Yerba Mate is also the way millions around the world enjoy starting their day or sharing time with family, friends and guests.  Brazil grows the most Mate, while Syria imports more Yerba Mate than any other country, the enjoyment and habit of drinking Mate was brought to the Middle East by emigrants returning from South America.

What a small world to see Lebanese and Syrian families enjoying Mati from their  Gourds and Bombillas!  The Gourd is usually passed in a clockwise circle from person to person, the Gourd is given back to the brewer after each person finishes which signifies that they don't want any more.   Each person drinks the entire gourd:  "you share the vessel, not the liquid."   The recipient of the gourd has as much time as needed to finish the gourd full.  Mate can be rebrewed many times, which makes Mati very economical.

How Does Yerba Mate Taste?

It is said that Yerba Mate has the  "strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate"  all in one beverage.  This stimulating herbal drink is brewed from the dried leaves and sometimes stems of the plant.   Mati is unique in that it can stimulate the mind and give you a pleasant jolt without the coffee associated jitters.  Yerba Mate is slightly bitter from the leaves and the tannin content, Mate with more sticks and stems will offer a more woodsy flavor than straight leaf Mati.

Bitter tasting drinks like tea or black coffee are sometimes an acquired taste, you can expect the same experience with Mate.  If you prefer your Coffee or Tea straight then you'll appreciate Bitter Mate, which is a  traditional Mate,  if you prefer a sweet Mati, simply add   Coconut Sugar  or your sweetener of choice and enjoy an  Herbal Mate.   South American Mate bars are now offering a variety of delicious flavors:

Performance Mate  with blended herbs to enhance your performance.

Mountain Rush Mate  features Organic Yerba Mate, with Yerba Mate extract  (for the rush)  along with almond, hibiscus flowers and elderberries for that wild mountain flavor.

Kokopelli Energy Mate  blends offers the easiest way to enjoy Mate, just add hot water and decide whether you'd like Cacao, Cinnamon, White Chocolate or other additions to spike up your Mate.

La Potente  offers 85% Organic Yerba Mate and 15% Catuaba bark.  Catuaba  (pronounced ka-twa-BAH)  Catuaba has been used for centuries by the Brazilian Tupi Indians.   It is well known in Brazil for its impressive physiological and psychological benefits.   The Catabua bark was used by the Tupi to relieve pain, improve memory, ease depression, and control anxiety.  In fact, the Tupi were so enamored of the powers of this tree bark, they even spread the word to other tribes and wrote songs celebrating its amazing benefits.   Catuaba is used in traditional Brazilian medicine as an aphrodisiac and central nervous system stimulant.  These claims have not been confirmed in scientific studies, but a journalist for the Discovery Channel claims that "reports in scientific journals and at conferences have supported [catuaba's] use for sexual enhancement.  In catuaba, a group of three alkaloids dubbed catuabine A, B and C are believed to enhance sexual function by stimulating the nervous system."

Acai Mate Blend  lets you enjoy two super foods.

Studies have shown that this little Acai berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world, it is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids.  This exclusive blend contains:   Yerba mate with Acai Berry extract, dried blueberries, dried elderberries, almonds, roasted carob bits, sweet stevia, and topped off with our exclusive Yerba Mate extract for twice the lift of traditional yerba mate.

Yerba Mate Preparation

Mate Preparation  Mate can be traditionally brewed with the Gourd, an Espresso machine, French Press, Coffee Pot, served hot or cold, or enjoyed with the convenience of  Tea Bags.   If you plan on drinking Mate frm a traditional Gourd it must first be cured to seal the pores and remove any vegetable meat left in the gourd.  This  Yerba Mate Video  shows you how it's done.  Some prefer to use Coconut water, Coconut milk or other milk with their Mate, the possibilites and combinations of drinking Mate are endless.
