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!
Barão De Cotegipe Tradicional
This erva mate can literally be a breath of fresh air for materos that are starting to feel bored by more common Argentine, Paraguayan and Uruguayan mates. It would be interesting enough for both regular chimarrão drinkers and materos who mainly drink other regional cuts of mate and want to freshen up their palate with something more exotic and different. Barão Tradicional is a wonderful example of what world of Brazilian mate has to offer, and another proof of how diverse is this beautiful beverage.
Another sweet yum by Cooperativa Liebig - this time more subtle, delicate and fragile, like the first flower in the beginning of the spring. Complex, light, sweet and floral flavors will definitely be approved by both seasoned cebadores and novice drinkers who haven’t yet developed palate for more bold and earthy mates.
Playadito Con Palo
At a first glance this mate may seem like another ordinary con palo yerba, but it cannot be further from the truth. Playadito Con Palo boasts one of the longest durations that you can experience in the world of Argentine yerba mate, along with naturally sweet taste and long pleasant finish.
