Yerba mate is from the nourishing leaves of the South American rainforest holly tree. For centuries, the Aché Guayakí rainforest tribe have sipped yerba mate from a traditional mate gourd for its rejuvenative effects. They found invigoration, focus, and nourishment in yerba mate. The leaves contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants, practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life! You can even sip this through the course of the day for an ongoing energy boost! A mild, subtle, leafy, slightly ‘grassy’ (not gassy) flavour with overtones of coconut and cinnamon, a delicious mug of happiness!
