Description

This Mate is the perfect compromise for those who find a fine powdered mate too intense but wants to drink a wild hand made mate.  It is easy to prepare in the cuia with a good endurance.

The Family Gehm has been producing mate since 3 generations in the region of Sede Nova in South Brasil.  They are proud artisanal mate producers who have taken the first steps towards legalising their production together with us.

Meta Mate Prada, produced by the family Gehm is a surprisingly soft Barbaqua Mate.  Having mastered the techniques of harvesting leaves in a manner that does not damage the tree, like other artisanal producers, they harvest from native plants paying attention to the moon phases.

When requested by the local agricultural department to modify their production techniques to adhere to industrial standards, the father head what was requested and stated that if he  did he was told he would be left with a legal mate that none of his customers would like to drink.

Drying and Sapeco techniques are something that mate producers pride themselves in and give each mate its own characteristic.  The Family Gehm’s production and infrastructure is slightly larger than other artisanal producers, the sapeco is done manually with the help of a metal drum that is revolved around the fire and the Gehm’s Barbaqua can hold a few hundred kilos of Mate.  The Gehm’s secret in attaining the soft taste to their mate lies in lighting up the fire and heating up the barbaqua before setting the mate on the drying racks.

The first artisanal mate production that applied for the legalization. A barbaqua mate that has a gentle smokey taste, a very bright color and counts with knowledge of 4 generations producing mate non stop.

    I have tasted different types of mate over the past ten years, but moida grossa is absolutely the finest of all the other one’s. It has crisp and refreshing taste and once you taste it, you are hooked for life:)

    Mate that has unmistakably unique taste and flavour. While there are many types in the market that you would not recognize and name in blind tasting, you for sure remember this excellent, super fresh, smoky and radiant green mate…and you start to want more!

    One of the most delicious mates I have ever had! Very fresh and earthy with a flavor unique to Meta Mate. Thick and leafy enough cut so that your bomba doesn’t clog, but you still get the fresh Brazilian-style mate flavors! You really can’t go wrong with this mate, I loved it and you will love it too!
