Best For Beginners

Yerba mate is an acquired taste. For most people mate seemed overwhelming, bitter and strong at first, which may lead to disappointment and loss of interest. That’s why it is important to start with a right yerba mate that can be enjoyed even by a novice; yerba mate that will introduce those earthy herbal flavors to an unprepared palate; yerba mate that will make you fall in love with this complex and healthy infusion.

What yerba mate for beginners ?

It’s best to start with Argentine yerba mate, because the majority of yerbas from Argentina are on the lighter and sweeter side, compared to other regional varieties. Most of the Paraguayan yerba mate, on the other hand, is smoked and too strong for beginners. Brazilian erva is really hard to prepare without proper tools and techniques, and Uruguayan yerba mate may be too full-bodied and bold for an unprepared palate. There are actually a lot of newbie-friendly Argentine yerba mates on the market that are naturally sweet, light, unsmoked and not overly bitter.

However, we decided to narrow down this list to the yerbas that are not too complex, light to medium-bodied and not super similar to each other, offering something unique and distinctive.
