Yerba Mate comes from a tree that is actually part of the evergreen holly family and grows in the subtropical areas of South America.
Tupelo Honey Teas offers fresh Yerba Mate that is not aged like the majority of the yerba mate that is available in North America. Fresh Mate is more flavorful and richer in the variety of nutrients found in the plant. In addition to being fresh mate, the mate we sell is organically grown and fairly traded.
Yerba Mate is prized for its energizing effects that are known to be longer lasting than the caffeine energy that comes from coffee. It also provides a jolt without the jitters or crashes sometimes experienced by coffee drinkers. Regular Yerba Mate drinkers say it brings an energy that feels good and lasts. There are even some researchers who say that yerba mate may possess a compound that has not yet been identified and contributes to this energizing benefit.
The antioxidant levels of yerba mate are even higher than green tea, and more recent studies are supporting the claim that yerba mate is also offers a thermogenic effect that could promote weight loss. Mate also helps to suppress one's appetite.
