We start the day drinking mate. We drink it alone, with friends and family, in our homes and outside as well. But how much do we know about it?
Did you know, for example, the instances through which the yerba that we love and consume so much passes? In order for us to have our package at home, it was first necessary to harvest the yerba mate. Then, the leaves were selected, applied heat (dried in ovens) and stored. Finally, they are subjected to the grinding and packaging process.
But in Milonga we consider it important to practice mindful consumption, and we want to tell you more. Did you also know that yerba mate is made of four components?
The INYM (National Institute of Yerba Mate) says that yerba mate should contain no less than 65% dried, broken or pulverized leaves (powder) and no more than 35% stick.
