Yerba Mate and Caffeine - My Experience

by Mark
(United Kingdom)

I have been drinking yerba mate for around 4 years. The only controversy is whether it is caffeine free.

It is said by some to contain matteine - which is similar to caffeine but has a different chemical bonding and effects your muscles more than your central nervous system.

But others maintain it is caffeine by another name. Still the amounts are minimal.

However I get a really good 'boost' and it does increase energy. I always buy it loose, not bags.

If I had to choose only 3 beverages I would choose 1) quality green/white tea, 2) yerba mate, 3) tulsi.
