Welcome to the world of Yerba Mate!


  • Yerba Mate
    The leaves of the plant can be steeped in hot water to make a beverage known as mate. Brewed cold, it is used to make tereré. Both the plant and the beverage contain caffeine....

  • Yerba Mate is a tree used as a superfood for thousands of years in South America. Its health benefits include, but are not limited to:
    - A balanced energy boost; Mate has equal amounts of caffeine as coffee but without the jittery side effects. 
    - Improved mental function.
    - It is a nutritional powerhouse as it contains as many antioxidants and 15 more amino acids as green tea does. 
    - Immune system booster.
    - Strengthens bones.
    - Supports a healthy heart.
    - Promotes hydration.
