Yerba Mate

It’s a good idea to buy Yerba Maté (yer-bah mah-tay) if your goal is to enhance vitality, focus, and well-being! It is the national drink of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay where it is more popular than coffee, chocolate, and tea combined.

After traveling in South America, you may look to buy Yerba Mate online and should consider the finest quality of this “gourd herb” is shade-grown. The leaves and stems of the South American rainforest holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis) are harvested and blanched, dried, aged, cut and milled to create this bold delicious brew. When you buy yerba maté, understand it is not from the tea plant, but it does contain caffeine and is said to bolster the metabolism and improve digestion. Traditionally consumed out of a maté gourd with a bombilla (specialty filtered straw), the maté gourd is often passed around to friends and family.

A related tea, also from the Amazon rainforest, is our organic loose leaf Guayusa Tea (gwhy-you-sa). This tea contains abundant caffeine and a large amount of antioxidants in a sweeter brew with a rich, oceanic aroma and molasses and chicory notes.  When you buy Guayusa loose leaf tea online, you get a clear, focused energy stimulant known for mental strength and courage.
