Yerba Mate Green (100g)


SKU: 12-31 Category:

Mate is made from the green leaves of a tree which resemble the Holly.

Originally from Paraguay situated in between Brazil and Argentina, it was consumed by the local native people and later became the drink of the Gauchos, the South American cowboys. Typically served in a calabash with a silver straw called a bombilla, Mate's stimulating effects last longer than coffee's, and short infusions are more stimulating than longer ones. Mate is rich in tannin and vitamin C and can be enjoyed hot or cold, with or without milk, and the additions of fruits, orange peels or herbs like peppermint and lemongrass will help accentuate its light caramel flavour.
