Our Yerba Mate tea is a smooth, full-bodied, energizing and rejuvenating herbal tea, which is commonly used to replace coffee. Mate contains many energy enhancing nutrients like vitamins B and C, as well as essential minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus. It also provides key amino acids needed for optimal brain function. Yerba Mate generally contains about half as much caffeine as coffee.
Yerba Maté is a traditional South American brew that has been said to offer the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage. It produces a smooth and refreshing full bodied herbal tea. The Yerba Maté Leaf is gently roasted until it darkens and develops a rich, roasted, nutty flavor with smooth chocolatey notes. Maté is known as an energizer and rejuvenator, and contains 24 vitamins and minerals and provides 15 essential amino acids necessary to promote healthy muscle tissue, along with potent antioxidant properties.
