Yerba Mate

For centuries, the people of South America have enjoyed the taste of yerba mate tea (pronounced mah-tay). The term is becoming well-known in today's society as more and more people convert from regular green tea and coffee to mate. In some parts of South America, yerba mate has a higher per capita than America has for coffee!

In 1995, American mate sales were around $400,000 (compared to green tea's sales of over $1 billion). By 2004, yerba mate was up to $8 million in sales and that number keeps on rising as the word spreads. In short, health experts and consumers alike all agree that mate is the next generation of coffee and tea. Try it for yourself and we're sure you'll agree as well! We do!
