Yerba Mate From Brazil comes the most amazing, healthful, stimulating, social drink you may ever experience...
Its energizing effects help get you going with increased mental clarity, energy and alertness. Yerba Mate sustains you throughout the day, helping to combat fatigue and sleepiness. The stimulating properties in Yerba Mate are found by most to be slower-acting and pleasant, without the nervousness and jitters often associated with coffee and other teas.
Our variety of Certified Organic Mate is not cured with smoke, as is often the tradition, because we prefer the fresh green flavor of the herb. We also choose not to age our Mate in order to preserve as many of the fresh nutrients as possible.
We use one hundred percent Certified Organic Mate, responsibly grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, preserving the environment where Yerba Mate is grown.
