Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate (ilex paraguariensis)

Grows wildly in Southern America between 12° and 33° parallels, so in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Brazil and Paraguay. The first plantations, which have functioned up till now, were set up by the Jesuits, who came from Europe to Paraguay in the 17th century.

The infusion from this plant is made from chopped dried and specially prepared leaves and twigs. For health purposes the Guarani Indians have drunk this infusion since the pre-columbian times. Until now this special plant has been an incredibly significant part of culture in the societies of Southern America. It is as popular as tea in Europe.

In our drink we use authentic and entirely natural extract from this magical plant!
