Product Description

After years of drinking coffee, feeling stressed out and drained, I switched to mate. Finally I feel focused and energized, ready to handle life.
I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a different energy source. - CF - Owego, NY

"I got turned onto Mate by some friends about six months ago. After being a regular coffee drinker for several years, I quit the coffee and switched to Mate. Mate doesn't give me the jitters like coffee. Also, I got the bonus of dropping 30 pounds in six months! Excellent stuff" - LH - Ithaca, NY

A treasure from South America now comes home to you:

  • Energizes and Sustains you throughout the day
  • Combats Fatigue and Sleepiness, Promotes Mental Clarity
  • Long Lasting Effects
  • Free from the Unpleasant Side Effects often associated with coffee

"Yerba Mate is smoother and gentler than coffee. It doesn't cause the jitters, but it still energizes. I feel energized without being wired up. I was going to switch off at first, drinking coffee one morning and mate the next; but once I started drinking mate I didn't want to go back, and now the coffee just sits on the shelf! Plus it gives me the b vitamins I need. I use it like a multi-vitamin." Charles Cahill - Union, MO

Yerba Mate is more than just an invigorating brew. It is one of nature's best sources of antioxidants. In addition, a full complement of vitamins and minerals (including chlorophyll, vitamins A, B, C, E, magnesium, potassium, iron, pantothenic acid, and much more) help make a cup of Mate tea an excellent immune-boosting brew.

"Thank you!!!! Yours is my favorite mate ever. I work in a coffeehouse and want to introduce your product.
It works especially well pressed in an espresso machine!" Heidi E - Mt Shasta, CA
