This quick and easy yerba mate latte recipe is another incredibly delicious way to enjoy the wellness benefits of this versatile herbal tea.
If you're a tea lover, a latte lover, or both, you're sure to enjoy a yerba mate latte (the best of both worlds!). Not only can yerba mate offer so many benefits for well-being (physically, mentally, and emotionally), but, because this tea is a natural source of caffeine, it can also 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 other favorite teas or coffees. Served hot or iced, with or without sweetener, milk, or flavoring, yerba mate is a flavorsome, all-purpose 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 much-loved hot and cold beverages will work perfectly with yerba mate, too - try making a latte with an espresso machine, and a French press also makes a beautiful cup (or cups) of yerba mate.
And, to enjoy an iced version, simply pour the yerba mate latte over ice.
