The traditional tea of Southern South America, Mate is brewed from the leaves and stem of the Ilex paraguariensis tree. Unlike other teas, the leaves and stem are exposed to flames (sapeco in Portuguese) immediately after harvesting. This is to quickly lessen the moisture but seal in the abundant vitamins (A, B, C, and E), minerals (magnesium, iron, calcium, riboflavin, niacin) and polyphenols. The leaves then undergo a second drying step but remain green due to the sapeco flame drying action. After the sapeco and drying, the green mate is finely cut and put into unbleached teabags. Its taste is often described as green, grassy and herbaceous, with a slightly smoky flavour, and not unlike green tea.

Pure powdered Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis).

Rio Amazon Yerba Mate Powder can be prepared in the same way as a Japanese Matcha tea. It can be prepared 'thick'or 'thin'depending on your preference. For a thin tea, mix half a teaspoon with about 75ml of hot water or milk and whisk until frothy. For a stronger flavoured Yerba Mate, or thick tea, mix one heaped teaspoon with about 40ml of hot water or milk and whisk.
