What is Yerba Mate?
Yerba Mate, literally defined as “herb”, is a highly caffeinated plant originally discovered in the Amazon. It was first enjoyed by the indigenous Guarani people of Paraguay in the 16th century, and has since become an integral ingredient to a variety of popular drinks throughout South America.
Yerba mate has been revered for centuries to promote optimal health and well-being. We know for certain that yerba mate provides the body and mind with a treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, and other compounds such as amino acids and antioxidants essential for good health.
Because of Yerba Mate’s complex earthy body, silky, smooth finish, and array of health benefits, we’ve incorporated this super-leaf tea into our Javazen Boost blend. The energizing and stimulating effects of the mate, when combined with our organic coffee beans, create a synergy of balanced energy that will keep you going throughout your day.
