The Yerba Mate La Merced Monte, produced by Las Marías, comes from the subtropical forest in mountainous areas at high temperatures on fertile soil, abundant rains and high temperatures.
La Merced Monte has been dried by the most traditional methods and its settling lasted for around 12 to 15 months. The origins and the milling methods limit the production of yerba and make it becoming a top quality product with an incomparable taste. It tastes a bit bitter which is a sign of its provenance.
De Monte is a medium bodied mate. Slightly heavy on the palate with a lot of texture to it. The blend consists mostly of finely-cut leaves, thick white palos (stems), and very little dust.
And unlike some mates, De Monte also doesn’t dry out your mouth. Instead, it feels a bit hydrating. If you brew this at higher temps, the body and texture is even more pronounced.
Notes of dried raisins and blueberries, cereal, honey, and some smoke/ash gracefully rise from the bag.
The yerba mate Merced Monte was distinguished with the quality Certificate: Alimentos Argentinos, una elección natural (Argentine food, a natural choice). This certification is awarded by the Secretariat for Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food in Argentina to products that assure the highest quality controls.
The Navajas family, which owns Las Marías, started the mate operation in 1924 on their cattle estancia with 38 hectares of planted mate. The raw material was and, largely still is, produced by small holders and subsequently bought by processors and packers.
