"I switched to Yerba mate because it is a healthier alternative to coffee.
I had a bit of a coffee blow as I can no longer drink milk due to an increasing milk intolerance so my favourite coffee option - latte, was no longer available. This is what made me start drinking mate.
the first mate I had was too strong for me. I started drinking very weak mate, and then I could enjoy it. I think I am drinking it stronger and stronger as time goes on. I think it is worth trying it at different strengths and temperatures to find out what suits you the best.
Mate is a really good choice for me for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it has many health benefits. Secondly, drinking mate in a beautiful gourd is an experience. I really like that I can treat myself in my own home, at such a low cost, by having a mate. I always feel really special and cared for when I drink mate. Preparing the drink, settling in my chair, is all part of the experience. Mate slows me down. There are not many soothing habits that we humans come up with, that are also good for us, but drinking mate is one!
I would highly recommend taking the time to invest in this new drinking habit.
I have really enjoyed the Yerba Mate experience. I drink the tea from the gourd every night. It’s part of my relaxing time for the evening. I only use a teaspoon of the tea leaves in each cup because I realized I like it on the lighter side, not very strong. I also keep the gourd sitting out on my shelf because it’s beautiful to look at. That makes it even more worth purchasing this product!
And the added health benefits you receive makes it something that is not only enjoyable and beautiful but a part of a healthy lifestyle.
