Origin, Brazil Yerba Mate was first used by the Guarani Indians, who believed it could cleanse and heal the spirit. Now, millions enjoy it in South America. Our Mate is grown on a 100% organic, family farm in Southern Brazil.

Chimarrao

Chimarrao is a style of Yerba Mate and a local favorite in Rio Grande do Sul (a state in southern Brazil). The composition of the leaf is in the form of a powder, unlike the full leaves of the traditional Yerba Mate. The powdered consistency provides a creamy texture to the brew.

Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate (llex 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.

Mate Constituents

Mate contains vitamins (A, B1 B2, C and E), mineral salts, 15 amino acids and high levels of antioxidants. Its chemical constituents also include alkaloids (caffeine).

Flavor Profile

Cooling, sweet, refreshing taste. Will provide at least 3-4 infusions.

Gourd & Bombilla

The Mate Gourd and Bombilla (straw) are traditional vessels used for enjoying Yerba Mate. The Gourd is filled one-third full with the leaves and, after adding water, the brew is enjoyed by sipping through the bombilla.

The Tao of Tea

Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.
