Yerba Maté is is a shrub in the holly family Aquifoliaceae, native to South America, used as a herbal tea. The word yerba is Spanish for grass or herb. The word Maté is from the Quechua mati, meaning "cup". Yerba Maté is therefore literally the "cup herb."
Yerba Maté can relieve fatigue, promote weight loss, ease depression and headaches, and help treat various other conditions.
During the processing of yerba mate, after the product is dried, it is placed in chambers to be age, also called stationing. This contributes to the flavor of yerba mate.
Fresh (not stationed) yerba mate is very green, bitter, and considered by some to be of low quality. It is drank in some regions of Brazil and some say that it has higher nutrient levels than aged mate.
Stationing gives it a milder flavor and the longer it is aged the more mild the flavor becomes. The length of stationing can vary quite a bit, up to 24 months, but 12-18 months seem to be the most common.
Oregon Yerba Mate offers you the best of both worlds! All of our products are made from a blend of both green and stationed mate for the best in taste and nutritional value.
