“Chilled Maté – (pronounced mah-tay) is a refreshing drink based on an extraction from the Yerba Mate plant – (pronounced yer-bah mah-tay). The plant grows naturally in many regions of South America including in the Amazonian rainforest. The drink was originally steeped, similar to a tea and consumed by various native tribes within the Amazonian basin. To them the drink gave them both physical and mental alertness as well as being a great provider of vitamins and minerals. ” – chilledmate.com
I have been trying out their two different flavours – natural and sicilian lemon & brazilian lime.
Both flavours are:
- natural source of energy
- less than 10 calories per 100ml
- healthy and authentic yerba mate
- ethically sourced
I didn’t really know what to expect when I first tried the drinks. I wanted something healthier than a fizzy drink as if I don’t want water and want a can of fizz I usually go for coca cola and that really isn’t good for you.
These drinks are such a better option for you and are a pleasant change from water or squash if you fancy a treat.
Both flavours are vegan friendly.
The natural one tastes like a fizzy fruity tea almost, the taste is very unique and I can’t really compare it to anything I have tried before but it is very refreshing and a real pleasant change from a can of cola or lemonade.
The lemon and lime one has that same taste I described above but with a hint of lemon and lime, like a flavoured sparkling water. It was quite refreshing and would be great as a treat in the summer if you want a cool fizzy drink but want something healthy.
Have you ever heard of this brand?
