Provides more Energy than coffee
The Yerba Mate is an energetic evergreen tree that produces leaves that are full of benefits. Once boiled in water they produce a drink that gives people more energy than coffee and has more vitamins and nutrients than tea.
Yerba Mate is often referred to as the ‘drink of the gods’ because it contains vitamins A, B, C as well as potassium, iron, manganese, antioxidants and more. It has everything to naturally boost your immune system, improve skin and hair health and get you moving.
Unlike coffee, which can make you feel heavy and has lots of acidity, Yerba Mate is light on the stomach and has a smooth finish. Yerba Mate has a flavor like green tea, only slightly more bitter and pairs great with honey and tea. It’s delicious when served hot or cold over ice.
Grow Yerba Mate in a container to keep in your kitchen or office to always have leaves on hand for an energetic boost in the morning or an afternoon pick me up. The Yerba Mate will continue to grow leaves all year so you’ll never run out.
Instead of constantly spending money on expensive coffees or sugary energy drinks you will save hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars by picking your own, home grown Yerba Mate leaves.
Yerba Mates thrive in shade as well as low light conditions, making them the perfect houseplant. They are even a delight to watch as they produce fragrant white blossoms from October to December that turn into vibrant, red ornamental berries in the spring that pop against their attractive dark green leaves.
The Yerba Mate grows just fine without a lot of attention. They are incredibly low maintenance and don’t require a lot of upkeep. Simply place yours in a container and immediately start enjoying the multiple benefits that Yerba Mate has to offer.
