No, the taste of yerba mate is different from tea.

Some people like asecond way of the infusion, called "mate cocido" that consists in boil water with yerba inside a kettle, for example, and then, let it cool a bit and then, drink the juice resultant. But still so, the taste is different from tea. And lacks the capacity of "share" the mate time between friends.

Amanda is one of the brands, but thre are several of them, usually different in their procedures, and then, with different tastes.

Coca Cola made some years ago, a carbonated drink based in yerba mate that they clled "nativa", but was unsuccessful, and stopped it.

The first time I tried the stuff it was the smoke dried variety......it had a slight tobacco’ish
taste I found rather pleasant which is surprising because I’ve never found much pleasant about tobacco in any other form.
Since then I’ve tried ‘eco teas’ unsmoked Yerba mate and even though still good I seem to like the smoked better.

Yerba mate is not intended to be smoked, it is to be infusioned, and the taste is also very different from tobacco. The plants itself are very different.

Not smoking it! Smoke Dried........something must have got lost in translation

Have you never had the smoke dried version?

Edit......I can’t even find the smoked for sale online, it was over 20 yrs ago when I had it and I recall reading something about the process causing it to be carcinogenic.......did it get outlawed?
