Mate is synonymous with sharing, gathering and hospitality. It is the party tea to energise and invigorate. Mate is prepared by the host in a “gourd” who consumes the first round, then tops it up with water to pass to each individual guest. The same leaves are used up to 10 times.

Bitter, earthy and smoky. It mingles well with citrus.
