Mate, commonly known as Yerba Mate (Ilex Paraguariensis), is an herb native to South America that is used to make that continent's national drink. It is made as an infusion by steeping the dried leaves of the yerba mate plant in hot water to make a tea-like drink and drink it hot or cold. Sourced from Brazil, organic Yerba Mate consists of tea leaves cut to 4 mm – the most desirable shape over ground powder due to its lighter, less bitter taste.
Along with tea, coffee, and cocoa, yerba mate is one of a handful of plants that produce caffeine, but unlike other common stimulants, yerba mate produces a gentle and long-lasting energizing effect. Yerba mate contains about 30-50 mg of caffeine per cup. Don't drink more than six cups a day!
