Types of Yerba Mate
The plant that Yerba Mate is made from is indigenous to South America. Although all Yerba is made from the same species of plant, it differs in color, strength, taste and cut from country to country. Yerba is most popular in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Brazil.
Argentine Yerba Mate
Yerba Mate from Argentina is widely popular. It contains all parts of the plant (leaves, stems, and powder), and it’s light to medium in strength. Most Argentine Yerba Mate tastes “earthy” but not too bitter, which makes it a favorite amongst beginner Yerba Mate drinkers.
Paraguayan Yerba Mate
Paraguay produces the least amount of Yerba Mate in comparison with other South American countries. It contains stems and leaves and more powder than Yerba from Argentina. Paraguayan Yerba is also stronger than Argentine Yerba, and it can be quite bitter. Paraguay is also home of the specific brewing method called Tereré, made with cold water instead of hot.
Brazilian & Uruguayan Yerba Mate
Yerba Mate is extremely popular in Uruguay even though it’s not grown there. Uruguay gets most of its yerba from Brazil, and Brazilian Yerba fuller and smoother than the other types of Yerba. When brewed, it produces an almost cream-like texture. Brazilian Yerba consists of mostly powder and finely chopped leaves (almost no stems). It’s stronger and more bitter than other Yerba. The Mate in Brazil and Uruguay is very similar, but Brazilian Mate is finely ground (it consists of mostly powder).
We offer Organic Yerba Mate Loose Leaf Tea and also a selection of flavored Organic Yerba Mate Tea Bags, including roasted, green, mint and lemon. Though all our Yerba Mate comes from Brazil, it contains leaves, stems, and powder.
