Mate or yerba mate grows in the subtropical regions of South America. Its leaves are drunk as a herbal tea or chewed fresh.
Yerba mate has become a real national emblem is several South American countries such as Argentina, Paraguay and even Uruguay. In these countries, an invitation to drink a mate is a gesture of sharing and friendliness. And you enter a circle of friends. In Argentina, green mate is actually drunk more than water! Mate is a herbal tea with strong vegetal notes and tangy accents, a drink full of vitality.
In our recipe, its powerful fragrance is enriched by strong peppermint and enhanced by a zesty flavour of citron.
TO HELP fight fatigue
Le maté est une infusion aux notes végétales prononcées mais aussi aux accents acidulés, une boisson pleine de peps. Dans notre recette, son parfum puissant est mis en valeur par la force de la menthe poivrée et rehaussé par une saveur zestée de cédrat.
Beyond its gustatory qualities Yerba mate is a real health cocktail whose benefits no longer need to be demonstrated:
Rich in antioxidants, it fights cell ageing.
Contains stimulating and invigorating properties which help to fight mental and physical fatigue.
