Yerba Mate Reviews

Mate is a big part of culture in Argentina. Despite the fact that mate is drank all over the country, it is grown and produced only in two northern provinces of Argentina — Corrientes and Misiones. According to the most recent statistics , Argentina is the largest producer of yerba mate in the world with 56-62%, followed by Brazil, 34-36%, and Paraguay with 5%.

Argentine people love their hot mate and prefer to drink it traditionally — out of calabash gourd or using vessels made out of palo santo wood or algarrobo wood.

Argentine yerba mate in general has a very balanced cut, that includes leaves, stems and powder — so called con palo. Some of the producers also make versions without stems and much less powder, so called despalada or sin palo.
