What is mate?

Mate comes from a tree called yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis), which grows in Southern-America. Yerba mate leaves are hand-picked, dried, ground and stored. The taste is unique, but there is some similarity between mate and green tea. Besides caffeine mate contains many important nutrients: vitamins, antioxidants and minerals - for example potassium, iron, sodium and A-, B- and C-vitamins.

How to make mate?

The traditional way to enjoy mate is to drink it from a special mate gourd with a metal straw called a bombilla. The idea of bombilla is that it filters the leaves while you enjoy the steeped mate. In South-America drinking mate can be a ritual like social event. Mate cup is filled again and again to infuse all the magic of the beverage. In social events, it’s normal that people share the experience together drinking mate from the same gourd. For starters we anyway recommend easily steeping your mate in a filter bag or a french press

Recipes for mate 

Steeped mate (making mate like tea)

  • 2-4 g yerba mate/ 2 dl 
  • Hot water from 70 to 80 degrees
  • Steeping time: 4 min
  • Suitable with: honey/ ginger/ lemon/ dried orange peel

1. Boil the water to max 80 degrees.
2. Add 2-4 g of yerba mate into the filter bag.
3. Steep your mate for 4 minutes and enjoy the energy boost! 

Notice that the water's temperature is important, when you steep the mate. Mate should be steeped in 70-80 degrees (you can use e.g. this to control exact water temperature). Hotter water makes mate more bitter. You can steep the same leaves a few times, by increasing the time of steeping - just explore and find your way to enjoy mate.
