Yerba Mate, an herb indigenous to the Amazon rainforest, is popular throughout Latin America for its invigorating energy and robust flavor. It is often referred to as the "Tea of Latin America" where it is widely consumed on a daily basis. Yerba mate has an earthy and bittersweet flavor with a stimulating energy. We use the green type as well as the traditional roasted type of mates in our exclusive blends. Organic yerba mate is one of many potential renewable rainforest products and is part of a socially and environmentally conscious movement known as market-driven conservation through non-timber forestry products.
