Origin, Brazil

Maté was first used by the Guarani Indians who believed it could cleanse and heal the spirit. Now, millions enjoy it throughout South America and beyond. Our Maté is grown on a 100% organic farm in Southern Brazil. We hand blend the leaves with fragrant spearmint to give it a refreshing taste.

The Plant

Maté (Ilex Paraguariensis) is an evergreen plant of the holly family (Aquifoliaceae). The plant can reach heights of 10-12 meters, but is generally pruned to about 4-6 meters. Although the plant does produce small flowers and fruit, only the distinctive oval shaped leaves and stems are plucked for processing.

Maté Constituents

Maté contains vitamins (A, B1, B2, C and E), mineral salts, 15 amino acids and high levels of antioxidants. Its chemical constituents also include alkaloids (such as caffeine). Maté is known to help cope with stress and is beneficial for the nervous and immune systems.

Flavor Profile

Cool, sweet, refreshing taste and a minty aroma. Will provide at least 3-4 infusions.

The Tao of Tea

Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf trees with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.

Suggested Use

Gourd & Bombilla

The Maté Gourd and Bombilla are traditional vessels used for enjoying Yerba Maté. The Gourd is filled one-third full with the leaves and, after adding water, the brew is enjoyed by sipping through the bombilla. Designs and shapes vary from region to region.

Supplement Facts

100% organic yerba maté, 100% organic spearmint.
