Yerba maté ("yer-bah mah-tay") can be brewed in a French-press or tea pot, but as our South American amigos know, the best way to drink it is as a loose-leaf tea brewed strong, in a maté gourd and sipped using a special stainless-steel tea straw, called a bombilla (pronounced "bom - bee - ya"). You can learn more about the traditional preparation of mate in our videos. We hope that all South Africans will have the opportunity to participate in a maté "ronda" (circle) on day. Join us and 150 million people around the world that enjoy this healthy habit every day.
- Use 1 flat tablespoon per cup to prepare yerba maté in French press (coffee plunger)
- Use hot water (not boiling) of about 70°C, and allow to brew for 1-2 minutes
- A 500g pack makes approximately 70 cups

Really gives a good, healthy lift in the morning! I have it with a teaspoon of honey. Similar to green tea, just way better!
