How To Drink Yerba Maté

Mendo Maté Version:




Page Status:

To start drinking yerba maté with your new yerba maté tisane blend it helps to know what options are available. There are many ways or methods to consume yerba maté tea. We have started a list of the more known methods. In general you can brew yerba maté using the same processes as you would any coffee or tea. These include a verity of accessories:

  • Official Power It® Method.
  • Traditional Gourd & Bombilla.
  • Electric Coffee Pot.
  • French Press.
  • Sun brewed.
  • Tea Ball.
  • Tea Bags.
  • Open Pot or Pan.
  • Mash or Non-Filtered.
  • One Cup Brewers and many more...

There are 2 major differences in the effects your body will have from the yerba maté stimulation. The first being a stimulation from consuming the yerba maté like you would coffee. The second being more like a cup of tea. The more yerba maté you drink the more you feel.

The measurements vary depending on how much energy you would like to expose your body to. Much in the same way you measure ground coffee you can take the same steps with yerba maté. So a larger amount of loose leaf will make a much stronger cup. Often we recommend to taste, but we regularly brew a full basic or about 45 grams of yerba maté in one coffee pot (12 cup). In traditional terms this measurement would be close to a full gourd.

After the tea has brewed you can add organic sugar, honey, soy, milk and or many other fun flavors. Yerba maté is actually quite easy to manipulate to taste by adding other spices, stimulates and herbs. We have done this in our yerba maté energy line including organic guayusa, organic hibiscus and more. The possibilities are endless.
