About Yerba Mate Tea
Pronounced 'mah-tay', Yerba Mate tea is a hugely popular drink in South America which dates back to the 16th century. The Mate tea comes from the green leaves of a type of holly that is said to have manifold good effects. Therefore in South America Mate tea is also called "Beverage of the Gods".
Drinking Yerba Mate out of one cup was something ritual with the native Indians. Its stimulating effect lasts longer than that of coffee. A short infusion time brings about a stimulating effect, longer weakens it.
Yerba Mate tea is a fantastic green infusion for providing an energy boost as it contains mateine, a natural stimulant similar to caffeine but without the toxicity and disruption to your metabolism. A Mate drink contains many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and boasts numerous health benefits.
