Yerba Mate Tea, a green tea infusion from South America, is drunk with a gourd called Mate and a straw called Bombilla. It has a lot of herbal health benefits and can be drunk bitter or sweet, by adding sugar or honey. The taste is very distinct for those who like more organic flavors but if this is not your preference, you might want to try one of the many flavored Yerba Teas available or even tea bags. You also have the choice to select from Yerba Mate with stems or without stems. The pure leaf version provides a strong, clean tea. The stems add a slightly wooden taste and tend to make the drink a bit lighter. This is the most traditional and common Yerba Mate style and is also known as “con palo”. We feature Brazilian and Paraguayan Yerba Tea brands as well as a vast selection of Argentine Yerba Mate.
