Yerba Mate Tastings: What's involved
We provide you with a wholesome experience into the world of yerba mate tea and South American culture. Tastings last for just over an hour and a half during which time you'll explore 10 different yerba mate teas covering various styles including pure leaves, with stems, herbs and blends. You will taste innovative products made of yerba mate. You'll learn about the origins of yerba mate, its culture, harvest, drying processes. You’ll be guided through a sensory activity to examine different brands of yerba mate and learn what to expect from your yerba (and what not to). At the end of the experience, you will know how to recognise different yerba mate types, how processing changes the taste of the yerba, we’ll give you practical advice about best practices to prepare your yerba mate, curing your gourd and what to look for when selecting a brand of yerba mate.
