Tomando mate (drinking mate) is a symbol of hospitality. As the mate gourd is passed around the circle, a sense of connection emerges. The first step of the ceremony is the preparation of the gourd. Typically, the cebador/a (mate server) prepares mate for a friend or a group of friends. The cebador/a drinks the first one or two gourd-fulls, testing the water to ensure that only a smooth running mate is shared. The the gourd is refilled with water and passed counter-clockwise with the bombilla (straw-filter) facing the recipient. Each person drinks the entire gourd, "you share the vessel, not the liquid". The recipient of the gourd has as much time as needed to finish the gourd-full. After the last few sips of the mate are gone, the gourd is returned with the bombilla facing the cebador/a. The gourd is refilled with hot water and follows around the circle, continuing in this fashion until the mate is lavado (flat). If someone has had enough mate, they simply say gracias (thank you) to indicate that they are finished.
Guayaki (gwy-uh-kee) Yerba Mate (yer-bah mah-tay) is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree Ilex paraguariensis.
For centuries, South America's Ache Guayaki tribe have sipped yerba mate daily for its powerful rejuvenative effects.
Yerba mate is native to the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. To capture the whole plant energy of the yerba mate tree, Guayaki blends whole leaf, tender stems and leaf powder for a potent infusion with enduring flavor.
Our Traditional Mate is pleasantly rich with a full flavored body, yet surprisingly soft on the palate, and complimented by earthy, and woodsy aromas. Make a superb mate latte by adding choice of milk and sweetener.
