Quality Yerba Mate in Ireland
Yerba Mate (yer-bah mah-tay) is known to enhance vitality, focus, and well-being. It is the national drink of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay where it is more popular than coffee, chocolate, and tea combined. The finest Yerba Maté (translates as “gourd herb”) is shade-grown. The leaves and stems of the South American rainforest holly tree are harvested and blanched, dried, aged, cut and milled to create this bold delicious brew.
Although yerba mate is not from the tea plant, it does contain caffeine and said to bolster the metabolism and improve digestion. Traditionally consumed out of a mate gourd with a bombilla (specialty filtered straw), the maté gourd is often passed around to friends and family. Loose leaf tea is sold by the ounce. If you want more than one ounce, simply increase the number.

Before yerba mate tea leaves can be processed, they must be grown. It takes at least two years for the tree to mature enough to be harvested. After it's harvested, yerba mate can be processed in one of two ways: drying or roasting. Yerba mate that is only dried is known as 'green mate' because of its green color. It has a more astringent, green flavor, and it is far less common than roasted yerba mate. Roasted yerba mate is harvested, dried, aged and roasted, which gives it a deeper, earthier flavor. It is sometimes dried with smoke, which gives it a roasty, smoky flavor that coffee drinkers love.
Brewing yerba mate loose-leaf tea is pretty straightforward. Just brew about 1 - 1.5 Tablespoons of dry leaf per cup with near boiling water for three to seven minutes, depending on your taste preferences. Add sweetener if desired (we love it with a little honey) and enjoy, or chill it and serve over ice.
Some people like to add a little milk (or milk alternative) or lemon juice (or other citrus juice), which can taste great with certain blends. And some people like to make a yerba mate latte with foamed milk (or milk alternative) and sweetener. These are also great ways to enjoy mate tea!
