Mate Cocido

Mate Cocido is a faster, less formal way to make and serve Yerba Mate. It results in a somewhat mint-tasting tisane to drink.

You can get Yerba Buena for Mate Cocido in bags since 1965. Instant versions came on the market starting in 2002.

Cooking Tips

You use dried Yerba Buena herb, about 3 grams to 8-12 ounces of water, cold or hot, or juice.

Moisten the herb or bag with cold water first. Then steep in hot water (max 150 F / 65 C -- not boiling) for 5 minutes maximum.
