Yerba Mat , (pronounced herba-may-tay), comes from the Indian name mat meaning "drinking vessel" or "gourd". Jesuits added the word "yerba," meaning the herb of excellence. This tea grows mainly in Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina, near streams and rivers. Yerba Mat is grown for its leaves; they are harvested and dried from December to August.
In some South American countries this is a national drink, more popular than coffee or any other type of tea. Add a little lemon or Stevia for a traditional flavour, sit back and enjoy.
