Yerba Maté Loose Leaf Health Benefits
This herbal secret from South America has just recently begun to make its appearance on the global stage. Fresh, vibrant and stimulating, yerba maté has enjoyed centuries of use in South American countries like Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Today, its fresh, intriguing flavor and moderate caffeine levels give yerba maté a rising popularity in the rest of the world.
Made from the leaves of the yerba maté plant, the drink is often simply called “maté” in its native countries, where it is consumed more than coffee and tea combined. Yerba maté is traditionally drunk from a hollowed out gourd, often decorated with elegant designs, and is shared among friends as a symbol of closeness.
