Coffee Machine Yerba Mate Recipe
1.5 tbsp Yerba Tea
Run water through your machine a couple times and clean well to get rid of any residual flavors. Use about 1.5 tablespoons per cup of water (You can also try orange peel, ginger or mint while brewing). Press start to begin brewing. Lastly, add your favorite sweetener or drink plain.
For iced mate, use 2 tablespoons of yerba per cup of water, add sweetener and/or flavor and pour over ice.
Put five tablespoons of yerba mate into the Press. (Add grated ginger, mint leaves, citrus to flavor mate’). Then put just enough cold water in the French press to wet the yerba (about 3 tablespoons). *This will helps preserve nutrients and make mate’ less bitter. You can also try orange peel, ginger, mint or whatever sounds good to the tea before brewing.
Add hot water (about 180 degrees). *Water that is too hot can also damage nutrients and make mate’ bitter. (You can either boil water and let it sit five minutes or just take off the heat when it starts to steam and release small bubbles). Let sit five minutes, press and add your favorite sweetener or drink plain. For iced mate, add an extra tablespoon of mate, add sweetener and/or flavor and pour over a full cup of ice.
