European explorers first learned of Yerba Maté in 1592 from the native tribes. Today, the pounded leaves of the caá, known as “erva maté” to those who now live in the lands of the Guarani, are used to brew a rich, stimulating tea, held to be synonymous with health, vitality and a long life.

The Healthy Energizer
The energizing effects of Yerba Maté are longer lasting than traditional caffeine beverages, and are found by most to be free from side effects such as, the jitters, mood swings, addiction, and post stimulation fatigue. The bottom line is, Yerba Maté gives you energy that really feels good.
Yerba Maté is more than just an invigorating brew. It is one of nature’s best sources of antioxidants. In addition, a full complement of vitamins and minerals (including chlorophyll, vitamins A, B, C, E, magnesium, potassium, iron, pantothenic acid, and much more) help make a cup of Maté tea an excellent immune-boosting brew.

Why Does Maté Factor® Yerba Maté Taste So Good?
1. We DO NOT age our Yerba Maté:
Most Yerba Maté sold in the USA is aged for 1-2 years before being packaged, according to cultural traditions from Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. However, in Brazil, Maté is commonly preferred as fresh as possible. The Maté Factor prefers this style, since it preserves the life-giving nutrients and the fresh green taste.
2. Our Yerba Maté Process is an Art:
We have spent years perfecting the art of creating delicately delicious Yerba Maté. We have painstakingly learned the vast array of factors that control the final flavour and vibrancy, in order to produce the best tasting, most nutritious Yerba Maté tea possible!
3. No Smoky Flavour:
We dry our Yerba Maté using an art we have developed that preserves the natural flavour and also keeps our original green flavour maté tea free from smoke. This low heat process protects natural enzymes that exist in Yerba Maté.
4. 100% Certified Organic:
We use one hundred percent certified organic Yerba Maté, responsibly grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers – which in addition, preserves the environment where our Maté is grown.
Farmer Friendly – Fairly Traded
We use 100% percent certified organic Yerba Maté, responsibly grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The Maté Factor is founded on providing a fair wage to the conscientious people in South America who provide our special Maté. Our company was founded on helping the producers earn a fair wage for their labor. We enjoy a personal, mutually beneficial relationship with our producers and have worked together closely in promoting organics in both the United States and Brazil.
Yerba Maté & Weight Loss
Yerba Maté is believed to aid in weight loss and has growing interest in those studying obesity control. Studies cite Yerba Maté to potentially interfere with cholesterol metabolism and delay intestinal absorption of dietary fat.
Obese men and women consuming Maté tea have shown a decrease in respiratory quotient (RQ), indicating an increase in fat oxidation.
A study done in 1998 at the Foundation University of Rio Grande, Brazil, showed that Maté is capable of vaso relaxation of arterial beds, which that the it may be able to lower the risk for heart disease in the same way that red wine is believed to do.

“After years of drinking coffee, feeling stressed out and drained, I switched to maté. Finally I feel focused and energized, ready to handle life. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a different energy source.” – CF – Owego, NY
“I got turned onto Maté by some friends about six months ago. After being a regular coffee drinker for several years, I quit the coffee and switched to Maté. Maté doesn’t give me the jitters like coffee. Also, I got the bonus of dropping 30 pounds in six months! Excellent stuff” – LH – Ithaca, NY
“Yerba Maté is smoother and gentler than coffee. It doesn’t cause the jitters, but it still energizes. I feel energized without being wired up. I was going to switch off at first, drinking coffee one morning and maté the next; but once I started drinking maté I didn’t want to go back, and now the coffee just sits on the shelf! Plus it gives me the b vitamins I need. I use it like a multi-vitamin.” Charles Cahill – Union, MO
