Our Yerba Mate is organically grown, fair trade certified by IMO, and produces a light green beverage, with a refreshingly bold flavor. Yerba mate is the dried leaves and stems of a South American rainforest holly and is the national beverage of Paraguay.
In traditional use of yerba mate, the tea cup is often shared among close friends and family, all of whom use the same straw, or bombilla. Sharing the same straw is considered a sign of total acceptance and friendship. Yerba mate is one of the world’s most effective and healing beverages with over 196 active compounds which shadows the active compounds found in Green tea (Camellia sinensis) which has about 144. This tea is untreated and contains no filler or flavoring agents, just pure organic yerba mate leaves.
