Wow, where does time go?? I am already getting ready for my daughter's senior year in high school. What is amazing to me is the difference between young people today and when I was their age. First of all, there are many more options today than when I was in high school. Speaking of options, what I have found is yerba mate is a good option for young people, and it's not that hard of a sell. I still frequent my old coffee shop and it amazes me how many young people, especially girls, who ask for the yerba mate. Granted, it's usually a Bengal Chai matelatte with sugar free vanilla or a Mate Splash a flavorful iced beverage with many options.
Plain, traditional brewed yerba mate is an aquired taste (sort of like straight black coffee). I know all you purest out there are going to say, "I liked it the first time I tried it!" I know, I know. Believe me, nobody is a bigger fan than I. But the bottom line is, to get young people to try yerba mate, one should consider doctoring it up a bit. With this in mind, I am going to share with you how to make a Mate Splash.
A Mate Splash is a cool refreshing way to enjoy yerba mate in the hot months. All you will need in order to make a mate splash is yerba mate and a flavor of your choice. I personally like the sugar free flavors. They seem to be more intense and really come through in the recipe.

Next month, I hate to say, will be a bit cooler across the country. I will look forward to sharing our recipe on how to make a Shaman matelatte. This drink is perfect for those cool mornings. Wrap your hands around the unique flavor of lavender and White Chocolate!
Until then, enjoy the last days of summer. Our storefront is a great place to start!
