Yerba Mate is a high caffeine drink, which comes with nice social rituals and antioxidants!

"Yerba Mate production in Argentina is almost an oligopoly of four enterprises which concentrate 80% of all that's made and sold in the country. Small farmers, usually organic producers, don't own the machinery to get through the process and have to sell their harvest to big producers. Luckily, we can still find some of them that can survive so we can enjoy the highest yerba mate tea quality and taste!"

Buy from MyMateWorld.com: pay only a little more to get it fresh and to deliver the money to Argentinian farmers! They offer many different companies' mate, and a sampler pack so you can compare. Our favorite is Mission Natural. The website also sells a variety of gourds at good prices!
