Introduction to Yerba Mate

Introduction to Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate is a member of the holly family and has been consumed for centuries in South America. Originating from the leaves and twigs of the holly bush, Mate is dried over fire and later steeped in hot water. It has recently gained popularity throughout the U.S. due to its many excellent health benefits, including fighting disease, weight loss, energy-boosting, and more!

Mate is praised for being as strong as coffee, healthy as tea, and enjoyable as chocolate. With a perfect balance between its energy and nutritional properties, Yerba Mate is a wonderful all-around tea with numerous health benefits.

Yerba Mate can be found dotting the countryside of South American countries such as Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. Mate is the national drink of these countries. This particular tea has become increasingly popular here in the States due to its many health benefits.
