Default DIY mate

It is well know that most South American inhabitants like to drink a beverage called Mate. The name obeys to the device in which the beverage is offered, and also in the name of the vegetable from which the sheets are used to prepare it. I also listened some time ago that some other cultures started enjoy mate during the last Olympic games here in Buenos Aires.

My old mate got leaky as it was made of wood and aluminum, and the constant humidity and the organic juices corroded the aluminum coverage, and so, started to leak. Then, with some things I have at hand, I made my own glass mate with a piece of copper tubing and a yogurt cup. Here is the result.

It's nice to 'get a handle on' the situation!

Is this product, available in the UK, anything like your indigenous beverage?

what is mate tea?

Yes, google for "Yerba mate". Now physicists say that this infusion is good for the health, but how can one prove it. Almost it is fun.

Thanks! I've learned something new!

Principally yerba contains significant quantities of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals which may be beneficial to health.

This site explains it all to anyone in the UK who may be looking for a mate!

Yerba Mate Tea an Importand and Traditional South American Infusion

The following accessories are associated with the drinking of the herbal tea:
  • yerba mate tea leaves
  • mate - a cup that is commonly made from a gourd, wood, ceramic, metal or horn
  • flask to keep your water hot or cold
  • bombilla - a straw to filter out the tea leaves. You will need one!

The brand "Amanda" Mate, made me chuckle for a second.
A man t'mate

So, I am curious what this tastes like (I have to admit to being very narrow minded, but mostly so in regards to Tea)

Now I've discovered it, I enjoy African grown coffees more than South American - some have a delightful Treacle like after taste.

Assam is probably my preferred black tea.

Green tea I find repulsive.

I am very tempted to buy some Mate, out of curiosity- I just hope it isnt like Geeen Tea, red Bush or I may not appreciate its qualities.
