Yerba Mate is a plant in South America that can be cultivated for the use in tea. It grows and is cultivated primarily in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, and Paraguay.
The term Mate (pronounced "MAH-tay", rhymes with "latte") is the short way to say "Yerba Mate" although the mate is also the name of the gourd you drink from. You'll hear people say "Want some mate?" when they want some tea. Yerba Mate is officially an infusion, but to keep things simple, we call it tea.
Preparing your yerba mate can be as simple or as complex as you want. At the most basic level, you are pouring yerba mate into a gourd or cup, inserting your bombilla, pouring in some water, then sipping away.
Check out our 5 minute video describing the process in more detail.
Yerba Mate has been used for centuries in South America to provide an energy boost and focus beyond that of normal caffeinated drinks. The drink has been used by cowboys (Gauchos), athletes, and anyone wanting to surpass their previous limits.
Yerba is known for the energy boost without the crash or jitters due to the type of caffeine in Yerba mate. You'll have a steady focused energy needed to achieve your daily goals.
