Peach Mate – How To Make Iced Peach Mate

April 23, 2010

I love peach mate.  If you have never had yerba mate or iced peach mate – it’s amazingly refreshing, healthy and delightful to drink.  Easy too!  Here is how you do it.

  1. Put on cup of loose green mate tea in a gallon jar.
  2. Add one kettle of hot water (not quite boiling) – this fills the gallon jar about 1/2 full.
  3. Let steep anywhere from 15 min to several hours
  4. Strain out the water out, throw out the tea and return the brew to the gallon jar
  5. add 1/2 cup of honey and one can of frozen ‘white grape peach’  juice (welchs)
  6. Fill the rest of the jar with water and refrigerate.

Serve the peach mate in a tall glass with a couple ice cubes and a lime slice.

Sit back and enjoy!

notes:  if you have a hard time finding the frozen white grape peach juice, ask your grocer to order it

And if you don’t know where to find yerba mate, here is a great source for organic loose yerba mate.

    Can this be made with the bottled white grape peach juice? If so, how does the recipe change?

      Yes, it can, you’ll just have to experiment with the potency and strength. If you figure out proportion you like, come back and let us know.
