The yerba maté (Ilex paraguariensis) plant is grown and processed in South America, specifically in northern Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and southern Brazil. Cultivators are known as yerbateros (Spanish) or ervateiros (Brazilian Portuguese). The leaves are often called yerba (Spanish) or erva (Portuguese), both of which mean "herb", and contain caffeine (known in some parts of the world as mateine).
Effects of yerba maté
This stimulating herb has the unique ability to wake up the mind without the nervousness and jitters associated with coffee. Yerba Mate is a cultural drink of ancient origins. Introduced to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America, Yerba Mate contains ingredients that help keep its drinkers healthy and energetic.
How to use yerba maté
Yerba maté tea is prepared by steeping dry leaves (and twigs) of the maté plant in hot water rather than in boiling water. It is consumed similar to a tea, more traditionally hot, but sometimes cold. It is recommended to drink with a straw, which acts as a filter so as to draw only the liquid and not the yerba leaves.
