What is the ideal mate for you? Take a look at this short guide for selecting the best yerba based on your needs, personal taste and lifestyle.
Mate with “palo” (stems) represents the most traditional version of the infusion, while the most popular in Argentina too. It contains all the properties which turn it into a drink of value, being great for the customary habit of having mate with friends. Obviously, you can have mate without stems, and with a greater amount of leaves.
Other habitual versions might also have less dust, a long-lasting flavour and a more crystalline liquid.
Students, employees, sportspeople and anybody whose life is a non-stop race and an infinite to-do list… all of them appreciate the “+energy” version that has 30% more natural content of mateine and can become a good replacement for energy drinks available in the market.
Boiled mate is a nice option for people that have no time to take mate in the traditional manner. This yerba is brought to you in tea bags, making it possible to add milk and sugar, just as if it were coffee or tea. Those that are out all day long and wish to have mate can choose the most practical way: buy the “mate listo” (ready to drink mate) at kiosks or supermarkets. The kit brings all you need, like thermos, a gourd, bombilla (straw) and yerba.
For people who love to try new things and tastes, there’s a range of flavours which will make them travel the world. For instance, “Orange from the east”, “Citrus from the coast” (which has a touch of orange, mandarine, grapefruit), the “Tropical passion fruit” or the “Pear from the Mediterranean”. This is the best choice for people that wish to experience something new or give a twist to the traditional mate.
There is a special version for our dear kids! Boiled mate for children tastes of vanilla and honey, while also being enriched with vitamin A, C and zinc.
Therefore, any family member can delight in a great mate depending on their likes.
