Guayaki Yerba Mate is a high energy infusion made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American mate tree.
For centuries, South America's Aché Guayakí tribe have sipped yerba mate daily for its powerful rejuvenative effects.
Guayakí's mission is to steward and restore 200,000 acres of South American Atlantic Rainforest and create over 1,000 living wage jobs by 2020 by leveraging our Market-Driven-Restoration Model.
Our Traditional Mate is pleasantly rich with a full-flavored body, surprisingly soft on the palate, and complimented by earthy, woodsy aromas. Makes a delicious mate latté with your choice of milk and sweetener!
