Meta Mate Raw is a unique product. Selected from forests protected from contamination, frozen to avoid oxidation and dried in very low controlled temperatures, this fibre-cut Yerba Mate benefits from state of the art production techniques in order to retain as much of the nutrient content of the leaf as possible. It has a gentle, smooth flavour and an earthy fragrance and is unlike standard Argentinean stored or Brazilian grassy Mates.
Due to its unique processing method, this Yerba Mate is known as the edible Mate and can be sprinkled on your favourite salad, added to smoothies or used in cooking to energise your meals. This Mate can also be prepared as a traditional tea and has a light algae-like taste to it and lends itself to easy cuia and bomba preparation.
The light flavour of this Yerba Mate is an ideal starting point for new drinkers. 1 tablespoon of Mate Raw to 175ml of water is recommended. Use 2 to 4 tablespoons for a stronger lasting taste. A true chimarrao drinker might prefer its edible capacities.
