Yerba Mate is a holly tree native to the rainforests of South America. Its leaves are brewed into a nutritious, antioxidant-rich beverage, Mate (say mah-tay). Mate is the national drink of Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay. People from all walks of life have enjoyed its beneficial properties for centuries.
When brewed as directed, this tea provides an ORAC value of 10,000umoITE/240ml, which is five times stronger than a typical cup of green tea.
What's an 'Eco' Tea?
Eco comes from the Greek word oikos, which means home. Ecology is the study of the home. Economy is the management of the home. At EcoTeas, we like to think of home on three levels: the body, the household, and the planet. That's why an Eco Tea is healthy, affordable, and sustainable.
The EcoTeas Story
We started EcoTeas in the year 2000 in the kitchen of our house in Ashland, Oregon. We came together as three best friends with a shared vision: to create a grassroots tea company that supports organic agriculture, fair trade business practices, and healthy living.
We work to bring you the highest quality teas at the best possible prices. In addition to providing green livelihoods for our farmers and ourselves, we strive to inspire simple, healthy, sustainable lifestyles. Thank you! Your purchase empowers our mission.
You are holding in your hand a pound of the finest yerba mate on the planet. It comes from a three-generation family farm in northern Argentina. It is certified organic, fair trade, and kosher. We plant thousands of native trees on our partner farm each year to create shade, enhance biodiversity, and diversify the local economy.
Our one-of-a-kind yerba has a vital aroma and a light, clean taste. It is dried with warm air instead of the usual smoke, then aged for at least nine months. Finally, we remove the stems and powder to achieve a pure-leaf product of exceptional quality and potency.
