A yerba mate latte is another so very delicious way to enjoy the health and wellness benefits of this versatile herbal tea!
If you're a tea lover, a latte lover, or both, you're sure to thoroughly enjoy a yerba mate latte (the best of both worlds!).
Not only does yerba mate provide a wealth of health benefits (physically, mentally, and emotionally), but this tea is also a natural source of caffeine and will give you a boost of energy, increased alertness, and improved concentration (just a few of caffeine's many benefits).
Traditionally, yerba mate is sipped through a bombilla (a silver or metal straw with a filtered end) from a gourd (a small cup used for making and serving mate), but you can enjoy this lovely tea just as you would any of your other favorite teas or coffees.
Hot or iced, with or without sweetener, milk, or flavoring, yerba mate is a delicious and versatile drink. A very nice way to appreciate yerba mate is in a latte...
This simple recipe for a scrumptious 12 oz. latte begins with a yerba mate teabag or loose-leaf yerba mate. But, if you prefer a more traditional yerba mate recipe (made with a mate gourd and bombilla), you'll find it here.
The equipment you already have at home to brew up your favorite hot and cold beverages will work perfectly with yerba mate, too - try making a latte with your espresso machine, and a French press makes a beautiful cup (or cups) of yerba mate, too.
And, to enjoy an iced latte, simply pour your mate latte over ice.
Many people do find mate somewhat astringent to the taste, so you may find that you prefer this tea with sweetener and even milk. A yerba mate latte is a wonderful way to enjoy the health benefits this herbal tea provides, served up as a very tasty, soothing, fragrant latte!
We often think that teas and herbal tisanes can only be served hot (or maybe iced)... but don't be afraid to use your imagination to dream of other ways to include tea in your day!
Not only do many teas make delightful lattes, but teas can also be used in baking and cooking, for their topical benefits (in steams, baths, and compresses), and in numerous other ways around the house and yard.
Yerba mate is such a satisfying, healthful beverage! The next time you're craving a hot, comforting, milky drink, try this yerba mate latte recipe - you'll be glad you did!
