Taking care to preserve the herb's natural vibrancy, vitamins, enzymes, bio-active components and flavor is the factor that delivers this delicious product to you. Mate available today is typically aged for at least one year. However, we deliver something special — Fresh Yerba Mate, with all the secrets of nature still intact. We process out Mate immediately upon harvest, seal in airtight packaging, and rush export to preserve freshness.

We carefully dry our herb using a process that protects its vital nutrients and natural flavor, which is smooth and delicious.
We Trade Fairly
