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!
La Merced Barbacuá
Wild, feral and even barbarous - this mate feels like it belongs to the nature and countryside, far away from the safe city. Barbacua method of drying contributes to the strong smoky array of flavors, taking your mind to a wilderness, where life feels way more exciting. If you ever enjoyed sitting in front of the campfire in the middle of the forest you will love this mate, but new drinkers beware - La Merced Barbacuá may be too much for unprepared palate.
La Merced De Campo
This is not another same Argentine mate, even though it may seem like that at first - behind a typical con palo cut La Merced De Campo hides unique features that will make this mate a nice addition to a shelf of any mate drinker. Unprecedentedly long duration, very balanced classic taste and sustained energy make this mate a perfect everyday productivity booster and a great introduction for beginners to what mate is all about - delicious earthy taste and long-lasting benefits of clear mind and non-overwhelming energy.
Kraus Organic Traditional
A unique and recognizable, Kraus Traditional is not afraid to go its own way. Organic and non-smoked, this yerba mate has a character that sets it apart from the majority of other Argentine brands. Complex enough for seasoned materos, with smooth and pleasant taste that will appeal to beginners - Kraus Traditional simply gives you no reasons not to like it.
