Hello and welcome! This website is dedicated to a South American drink - mate. When I first discovered yerba mate I found out that there is not a lot of information on how to prepare it traditionally and most of my questions about mate were unanswered. I had to try things on my own, I made mistakes and observations. I decided that these observations and knowledge may be useful for someone who is starting to explore this magical drink, hence the name of this resource - Matexperience, which means my personal experience with mate. I only share things that I personally tried and techniques that really work. Hope you enjoy it!

However, is it enough to justify the lack of aroma and a very short duration, or are there other Paraguayan yerba mates that don’t make those compromises?Continue reading →
I have so much to say about this yerba mate, that it is hard to sum up with few short sentences. But most of that is my personal experience rather than describing mate itself - Piporé Selección Especial seems to be unique to every drinker and I cannot guarantee that it will give you the same sensory experience. What I can guarantee is a premium quality yerba mate that will not disappoint beginners and regular materos and will be especially satisfying for mate aficionados and connoisseurs.Continue reading →
