Yerba Mate Cold Steep Methods
Here are some cool yerba mate drink ideas:
Cold Steeped Yerba Mate Tea
Use 1 cup of loose yerba mate tea for every gallon of tea you want to make (can be adjusted based on how strong you want your mate tea to be). Let the grounds steep in cool water overnight (in or out of the fridge). Strain in the morning and refrigerate.
Enjoy cold steeped yerba mate tea plain or with your choice of sweetener.
OR: You can do any variety of things to your yerba mate base. You can add 1 to 1 1/2 cans (per gallon of mate) of frozen juice concentrate (rasberry, peach, grape, etc) or frozen lemonade. No extra sweetener is normally needed.
Experiment, there's so much you can do with Mate Factor yerba mate!
Cold Steeped Mate on the Go
Place one or two yerba mate tea bags in a bottle of cold water and let them sit for 10 minutes or so. Add lemon, lime, or sweetener as desired.
You can also make delicious sun brewed mate tea. Take the standard 1 cup of loose yerba mate per gallon and leave it in the sun for a few hours. Strain and refrigerate.
