A GIFT FROM THE RAINFOREST
Yerba mate culture dates back to several centuries when the Guaraní people were sharing yerba mate in the Paraná rainforest a long time before Europeans arrival. Considered as a gift from the gods, the infusion gave them strength and courage and was a part of their rituals.
Still today, yerba mate means: friendship, sharing, and connection with oneself and others through a very unique ritual that consists of sharing a mate while having a good moment.
In Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and southern Brazil, mate is consumed equally if not more than coffee. In these countries, this infusion that promotes well-being and a good mood is firmly rooted in the culture.
