Mate Tea

Yerba mate, or simply "mate", is a typical drink of South America, made with the leaves and stems of yerba mate. An infusion is obtained from this plant which is highly appreciated by the local populations and which is increasingly sipped in European countries as well. Numerous scientific studies have recently confirmed the positive effects on health of this exotic drink, ideal for having the right energy and boost to successfully face any moment of the day. Properties and benefits of mate: Among the properties of yerba mate, its energizing effect stands out: in fact, this drink is excellent to consume during the change of season to deal with the feeling of tiredness that often accompanies these transitional periods. This property depends on the presence of mateine, a substance which has characteristics similar to those of caffeine but which does not have the typical side effects of the latter.
Mate tea was also appreciated by ancient populations who used it as an infusion for its tonic and revitalizing effect on the body. Among the other benefits of yerba mate, the satiating property due to the presence of theobromine in the plant also stands out. In fact, this hot drink offers the advantage of accelerating the metabolism and amplifying the sense of satiety, thus promoting the slimming process.
Other scientific studies conducted in recent years have shown that the mate drink has an antioxidant power, provides a beneficial stimulus towards the cardiovascular system and gives a greater ability to strengthen the immune system.
Argentine mate is an authentic wellness ritual, but how is it prepared? The infusion can be prepared like a normal tea, i.e. leaving a spoonful of leaves in boiling water to infuse for about 08/10 minutes, then filtering everything before drinking. If you want to follow the preparation of the original mate, however, the drink must be made differently. You need to have a specific container, called mate or matero, equipped with its straw, the bombilla: with this tool it is not even necessary to filter the mate as you put the spoonful of leaves, fill the container with boiling water and, after waiting a few minutes for the drink to be ready, drink it directly from the straw. For lovers of tradition, here's how to make mate according to the original ritual.
