Yerba Mate Culture: JoonasHi everyone and welcome to Yerba Mate Culture!

I am Joonas, the founder of Yerba Mate Culture. I am a happy dude who likes surfing, traveling, and spending time with my son. And, of course, I enjoy drinking yerba mate and various other types of teas.

I also like nature, as you can see from the picture (I am the one with a beard). So I like growing herbs and walking in nature foraging for berries and mushrooms.

Story of Yerba Mate Culture

The reason I started this site is that I enjoy drinking yerba mate along with other teas and I want to share this pleasure with everyone who is interested!

My goal is to provide you with information about yerba mate — how to prepare and drink it and what are its health benefits. Also, I want to help you with choosing and buying yerba mate and the utensils related to brewing it.

Then there are the various “real teas” made from Camellia Sinensis, the tea plant. From Chinese green and white teas to Japanese matcha, and India’s Darjeeling and Assam, they are refreshing and full of healthy antioxidants.

Mostly caffeine-free, herbal teas made from different plants have many health benefits and are excellent natural remedies for many conditions. I want to share information and encourage people to use natural remedies instead of taking prescription drugs right away.

I drink different teas daily because they taste good, are healthy, and give me energy. I’m always looking for new varieties and brands to try out and this is a great place to share my experiences.

After trying yerba mate, or any other type of tea, for the first time, many questions may arise. What is the story behind this drink? Does it have caffeine and how much? Is it healthy? Where can I buy it?

You can find answers to all of these questions on this site.

I Want To Share The Pleasure

I have noticed that drinking tea is a nice habit to add to your life for several reasons. Tea can give you energy when you need it and drinking it can be a moment of social interaction with friends and family. In addition, a great cup of tea tastes natural and refreshing, and it’s healthy and stomach-friendly.

That’s why I want to share the pleasure with you!

If you ever need help or have any questions or comments, feel free to post them below or send me an email, and I will be happy to help you out.

All the best,
