A South American ritual. A shared cup of Mate is the core of social interaction though out the central and southern regions of South America. Robust in herbaceous, vegetal, green flavors, Mate is strong and demanding. Yerba Mate has been used for centuries as a medicinal herbal tea and has been shown to be more beneficial than Green Tea in terms of its balance of energy and nutrition. High levels of caffeine and theobromine provide the boost while polyphenols, flavonoids, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals nourish the body. Our unsmoked Mate is of a fine, high-grade and comes from a tea plantation in Argentina. This organic tea is ethically sourced, economically sustainable, small batch and artisan crafted.
