Yerba Mate – your gentle energy booster!
Yerba mate is made from the leaves of llex paraguariensis – a type of holly found in the rainforest in South America. It has a very distinct flavor, it’s very rich in vitamins and amino acids, which is great for your health. Yerba mate contains less caffeine than coffee but more than a cup of tea. As we know, caffeine is particularly beneficial for our mental focus and as yerba mate is known for providing energy boost – it rarely interfaces with sleep. Which is nice!
