About yerba mate

What is yerba mate?

Yerba mate is a plant that grows in large parts of South America. The leaves of this plant are dried, and this forms the 'tea' we call mate, although technically it is not really tea, but a drink of its own.

What does yerba mate taste like?

Yerba mate has a distinctive taste described as grassy, smoky and bitter. If you are just starting to drink yerba mate, we recommend adding sugar or honey to the yerba mate to soften the taste.

Which flavor should I choose?

Ultimately, this is of course completely up to you, but we do have a few recommendations. Just like coffee, yerba mate has a special taste that may take some getting used to at first. That's why it's important that you choose the right flavor so that you aren't put off the first time.

There are a few brands we recommend if you want to drink yerba mate for the first time. These are not extremely bitter, and sometimes even a little sweet:

  • CBSé ; This is an Argentinian brand. CBSé's yerbas are often sweet and have fruit or something else as an addition.
  • Verde Mate; This is a brand with yerba mate from Brazil. They have many different types, but what is important is that their yerba is air-dried, rather than smoked. This makes it less bitter, and therefore much more accessible for a novice yerba mate drinker.
