This national beverage with caffeine originally comes from Paraguay, southern Brazil and Argentina. Slightly smoky, spicy and tangy with smooth notes of fruits, its flavour reminds of a strong green tea. The tea comes from the green leaves of a type of holly. Therefore, in South America, Mate tea is also called “Beverage of the Gods” or the “Green Gold of the Indios”. The caffeine is bound to tannic substances and is set free in the body very mildly. Hence, its stimulating effect lasts longer than that of coffee. A short infusion time brings about a stimulating effect, a longer one weakens it.

To achieve a tasty infusion use boiling water and let brewing for 5-10 minutes.
