Traditional blends

Rosamonte Suave


If you are new to Yerba Mate and you are looking for a smooth, traditional blend, then Rosamonte might be just the product for you.

This was the first traditional blend that I tried and I must say that it is quite nice. It has a bit of an earthy, grass-ish, hay-type flavor and is not too strong. Other folks say that they can taste a slight smoke essence, but I never noticed that.

I usually mix 1 rounded teaspoon into a coffee cup of hot water. I then swish it around with my bombilla and let it steep and cool off for a few minutes. This mate goes very well with dark chocolate and would be a perfect companion on a cold winter evening. I have never tried it iced, but I imagine that it would still be pretty good.

Cruz De Malta

My family, as well as my brothers like this brand because it is a ‘mild’ mate, and is usually a good choice for those that have anxiety or nervousness. It is also usually one of the less expensive brands.

This brand is from Argentina and seems to be one of the most popular ones. Most stores that carry mate usually carry this one.

Itapua La Potente

Awesome Yerba MateWow, what a blend! Full of flavor and loaded with anti-oxidants and other good things. Itapua is making a statement with this Mate! This blend is made with 15% Catabua bark which is known by the Tupi people to relieve pain, improve memory and bring anxiety under control.

This blend uses 85% certified organic Yerba Mate and 15% Catabua bark.



Cachamate has done it again with a wonderful, super healthy mix of Yerba Mate, pennyroyal, mint and boldo. This excellent and lightly flavored mate is sure to please from a taste and health perspective. We really enjoyed this blend for it’s light mintyness.

Cachamate is a traditional Yerba Mate blend with lots of lightly flavored blends based on herbs, much like herbal tea. some of the herbs in their blends include Chamomile, Fennel, Coriander, peperina, Lemon Verbena, Marine Algae, Mint, Pennyroyal and Linden Tea.



Campesino mint with boldo is a nice break from the the average Yerba Mate blend. With strong mint flavors and the power of boldo to moderate the stronger Yerba Mate flavor, this blend is sure to please.

Boldo is an herb grown in Chile and frequently added to Yerba Mate to smooth out the naturally strong Yerba Mate flavor. Boldo is often used as a supplement to reduce the effects of a hangover and upset stomach.

Nobleza Gaucha

noblezagauchaThis is one of my favorite Yerba Mate brands, it is very strong however, but has a great taste. It is considered a highly traditional mate and comes from Argentina. This mate is not a fine powder and will contain both leaves and stems. [review by kriegmiester]

Nobleza Gaucha has several varieties of traditional mate: Blue contains stems and leaves; Red with no stems or leaves and Green which has been aged for 24 months. The Green is said to be quite good, but also the strongest flavor out of all the varieties.

The best brands of flavored Yerbe Mate

Out of all the Yerbe Mate I have tried, I believe that the two best brands are Salante and Cremoso. Of the two, I find Salante to deliver a more powerful and rich flavor, while Cremoso has a more earthy, smoky hint.
