Yerba mate comes from a species of the holly genus Ilex native to South America. It is naturally caffeinated and produces a bitter, earthy flavor, which can be an acquired taste. Those who love it say that the stimulating property of yerba matte is less jitter-inducing than that of coffee or black tea. Yerba Mate tastes like tea but delivers a boost of energy like coffee. This sensational beverage is made from the steeped leaves and twigs of the Ilex paraguariensis plant and is a natural pick-me-up morning, noon or night.
