Why is Yerba Mate the Best Tea to Drink?
While It Might Take a Few Minutes...
I am of the belief that while the actual yerba tea is incredibly healing, the ritual that goes along with drinking mate puts it into the stratosphere of healing things to do for your body.
Sure, it might take a few more minutes than opening up a bottle of tea, but in the end, it will be so worth it.
Freshness and ingredients are directly related to taste and the effect it has on the body. Taking a few extra minutes to prepare something for yourself that improves the quality of your life will always be worth it.
Once you are set up, the making of a yerba mate is easy. In other words, if you already have the loose leaf yerba, a cup, bombilla and way to heat your water, a few minutes is all it will take.
Yerba Checks a lot of BoxesNot only does yerba taste amazing, it is a beautiful ritual and so much more than drinking a "cup of tea." It also has health benefits that make this incredible tea a superfood.
The Best Modern Ritual is one you can do Daily
SoulMate Yerba started about 4 years ago. I started the company with my friend, Pamela Saunders.
I had been doing nutrition counseling for about 15 years. I was burnt out, but I was tired of talking calories and portion sizes. That isn't what was important for true healing. Not only that, so many women were so stressed out, that our work together was creating more issues.
I went on a trip to visit my family in Argentina. I was born there. And while all my stress melted and I was surrounded in love, I knew I had to to do something that would meld my Argentine culture with the American side of me. While sitting around a table, with three generations, passing the mate gourd, I knew this was it.
The yerba ritual is one of sharing, of sitting together, of taking a breath, of connecting. I drink it every morning, so it is also a connection to self. What is even more beneficial is that the ritual creates no harm. In fact, yerba is a superfood. It is often called "the gift of the gods." It has been enjoyed for centuries for all the healing qualities it possesses. For all of these reasons and more, we are trying to get women to the "table" to heal, connect and share.
