Mate is a South American invigorating drink that contains a lot of caffeine (matein) and vitamin C. Mate's caffeine is a much gentler wake-up call than coffee's, so it doesn't cause the same level of alertness collapse as coffee does.
Mate is a strong, somewhat earthy drink, with a taste somewhat reminiscent of green tea. It can be prepared like tea by brewing or using the traditional method from a calabash cup with a bombilla straw. The brew itself, or yerba mate, is collected from the yerba mate plant, which grows in nature, e.g. in Argentina and Uruguay. All Forsman's mats come directly from South American producers without intermediaries.
Native peoples of South America used Mate for a thousand years because of its stimulating effect. Mate arrived in Europe at the end of the 16th century. Because of its invigorating effect, mate is a great choice if you want to switch coffee out of your diet. Matella is guaranteed to start the day, and in traditional manufacturing, the same leaves can be reused countless times.
In addition to the stimulating effect, the biggest health effect of mats is improving concentration. That is why Mate is increasingly drunk at work, at school and during long drives. Mate also helps with weight control and weight loss, because mate increases the feeling of satiety.
Forsman's mate world includes both flavored and unflavored options. Mate Kuuma Tanssi , a mixture of roasted and green mate with the taste of exotic fruits, is the most popular mate in Finland.
