GUAYAKI YERBA MATE

Guayakí Yerba Mate, a brand Guayaki, began as a college senior project in 1996. Guayaki Yerba Mate is shade-grown in native forest environment. Sheltered from direct sunlight, which can burn the leaves and make them bitter, rainforest grown yerba mate leaves are dark, emerald green and teeming with nutrients and flavor. Guayakí hand-picks only the leaves and tender stems. After passing through a flash heating process to protect the antioxidants and nutritional properties, the mate is dried at low-temperatures. Finally, the mate is aged for one year in cedar chambers for a smooth, rich and balanced flavor. Recent scientific research suggests that the stimulant in yerba mate is caffeine; however, caffeine-sensitive individuals do not experience the harsh side effects (jitters, stomach upset, headaches, addiction) that are common complaints with coffee, black tea, or Asian green tea.
