Origin, Brazil
Mate 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 Mate 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
Mate (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.
