Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis), the unique South American beverage has many reasons why outstands other infusions, but in this blog post we'll talk more about its taste!
There is a difference in the taste if you are a beginner or an experienced Yerba Mate consumer! At first try, you will taste a strong bitter taste that's very unique and unusual, but after a couple of sips, you will be able to really feel the meaning behind this one in a kind beverage!

For the beginners, the first sip will create a strong feeling at your taste buds, because of the Yerba Mate bitterness, but there's always a plan B if you just cannot stand a bitter taste but still want to enjoy your Yerba Mate! You can favorite it with honey, milk, brown sugar or even get extra and add some chocolate!
Intermediate taste of Yerba Mate will be the taste that you'll get after a few weeks or months of drinking Yerba Mate! Now you'll get used to its bitterness and even love it and enjoy it!
The expert taste of Yerba Mate is the most interesting one because, after a year, you'll be able to describe the Yerba taste like a pro! But that's not all, you'll also be able to highlight which notes you taste in each brand
Is it worth it becoming a Yerba Mate experienced drinker? We believe that it is, but not only for its unique taste but also because of the health benefits this natural beverage can give you!
