What is Yerba Mate?

Leaves from Ilex paraguariensis are harvested to make mate, Chimarrão & Tereré – hugely popular beverages in Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. Yerba Mate has been used for thousands of years by the Guaraní People for stamina and as a natural remedy with numerous health benefits. Today people still swear by yerba mate as a source of energy, as a way of aiding weight loss and for general well-being.

Traditionally, mate is sipped from a natural gourd through a metal straw called the “bombilla”. UruShop is proud to bring you the widest selection of yerbas and accessories in the UK, as well as a growing range of traditional South American foods.
