What is Mate

Yerba Mate is a traditional South American brew that is said to offer, “the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate."

It is made out of the dried greens of an evergreen holly, “Illex Paraguariensis” which is a native plant of the central and southern regions of South America.

Yerba Mate is a natural source of energy that has been consumed as a brewed beverage for centuries, and it will help you gain mental clarity, stay alert and focused, and be as creative as possible.

It is traditionally drank from a hollowed container called a Mate Gourd and sipped with a "Bombilla" that has a filter at the lower end to strain out the tea leaves. However, mate can also be made with a french press, coffee maker or infuser as well! It is such an amazing, energizing and healthy beverage with a multitude of benefits that you can actually feel in the immediate moment.
