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!
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.
Del Cebador Clásica
Definitely one of my all-time favorite yerba mate brands, personally for me Del Cebador Clásica doesn’t seem to have any downsides at all - it’s not too hard to prepare, it has a very rich and unique taste and lasts for a very long time. This yerba mate will be a great starting point for those who want to begin exploring Uruguayan yerba mate brands, and can be a revelation for seasoned materos who are in search for something special and full of flavor.
Club-Mate completely exceeded all my expectations - this will surely be my soft drink of choice from now on. Today, the market is saturated with overly-sweetened sodas with boring chemical taste, so it is very refreshing to see something not as sweet, with natural and interesting flavor, like Club-Mate. I’m still surprised how well they managed to transfer yerba mate flavors and effects to a soft drink. If you like traditional mate or if you like soft-drinks but tired of similar and unhealthy mainstream sodas, then give Club-Mate a shot - I think you will certainly like it as much as I did.
