Mate & Guayusa

Mate

Thick and full-bodied, Mate is rich in mateine and was used as caffeine in Latin America before the advent of coffee. Sourced from a superb grower in Brazil, this Mate is a relatively broad-leafed variety with some stalk. When infused it produces a robust cup with hints of green tea grassiness, oak, tobacco, and a faint touch of squash.

Guayusa

In addition to caffeine, guayusa also contains theobromine, the stimulant found in chocolate, and L-theanine found in green tea that has been shown to reduce physical and mental stress. The caffeine content in guayusa is around 3% by dry weight, and guayusa contains all of the essential amino acids for humans and has a “high antioxidant activity,” with ORAC antioxidant values of 58μM per gram, compared to 28-29μM per gram for most green teas.

Thumbnail of Mate Gourd | Toasted
Mate is traditionally prepared in a hollowed calabash gourd known as a mate or guampa. The gourd is packed anywhere from 1/2 to 2/3 full of leaf and then filled with hot, but not boiled water (160 - 180°F). Next, a stylized silver straw tipped with a built in strainer, the bombilla, is inserted into the gourd.

The traditional way to drink Yerba Mate is fun and engaging group activity. The Cebador (server) fills the gourd and drinks the mate completely with a Bombilla (straw) to ensure that it is free of small particles and that it is of good quality. The server subsequently refills the gourd and passes it to the next drinker who likewise drinks it all. The ritual proceeds around the circle until the mate becomes lavado (washed out), typically after the gourd has been filled about eight to ten times.

Each gourd will vary in look, shape, height and diameter as this is a product manufactured from nature.
