The perfect tereré to face the heat

Tereré is one of the most popular social drinks, such as mate, on the Argentine coast. Here we show you their preparation.


Tereré is one of the most popular drinks on the Argentine coast. It is a drink that has a strong presence in social encounters, just like mate. Argentine provinces such as  Corrie  n  tes ,  Misiones and  Entre Rios  have a strong tereré culture because of the Guarani influence.

Let's go to the important thing: how to prepare a good tereré?


  • Citrus fruits: lemon, grapefruit, orange or lime
  • Jug of cold water and ice
  • Hollowed fruit to use of mate or a mate
  • Yerba mate de palo


  1. We prepare the juice of the chosen fruit. Citrus fruits are best for this preparation. The water should be fresh and it is advisable to put ice on it.
  2. In a mate or hollowed fruit we must fill half with yerba.
  3. Pour the fresh juice until the mate is filled

The  preparation  is simple, you can accompany the tereré with other herbs to give a touch of special flavor. You need to add them to the water where you prepare the juice. The most recommended are mint, good grass, cocu, zedron, boldo, among others. Cinnamon and cloves are good companions for the drink.

We can use juice in envelope if we don't have fresh fruits, but the flavors will not have the same impact as the fruit itself generates. But it is an option, more in case you do not have fruits and want to drink a fresh tereré.

These are the simple steps to put together a good tereré. The consumption methodology is the same as that of popular mate. We fill the matte, take with the bulb, it's over and fill it again. It goes from hand to hand and is the unfailing companion at all meetings.

Other fruits can be used, but, being a fresh and strong drink in summer, citrus gives a plus of freshness.
