Yerba Mate (pronounced "yerba mahtay") is a medicinal and cultural drink of ancient origins prepared from the leaves of the South American shrub Ilex paraguariensis, which is related to holly.
Yerba Mate is traditionally prepared and drunk from a hollowed-out gourd or metal canteen using a metal straw. The tea is believed to have appetite-supressant and thermogenic (body temperature-raising) effects, and was used by some tribes to control hunger in periods of scarcity. Yerba Mate is a favorite beverage of South American sheperds, who use it to keep their minds alert and bodies invigorated during long stretches spent on the windy planos of Argentina watching their sheep.
This is the only 100% Certified Organic Mate and is cultivated on small, sustainable farms in Paraguay. The leaves of Yerba Mate contain caffeine and theobromine, a structurally related alkaloid also found in chocolate. Yerba Mate has become a cultural phenomenon throughout South America as an invigorator of the mind and body.
