Yerba Mate, the caffeine alternative with the "strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea and the euphoria of chocolate" is now available in a sparkling beverage.
This new drink with ancient ingredient Yerba Mate helps stimulate focus and clarity and boosts physical energy. These lightly carbonated drinks are USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified, and feature a delicious and refreshing taste that is available in cola-flavoured Classic Gold, Cranberry Pomegranate and Grapefruit Ginger.
Yerba Mate is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the South American rainforest holly tree, which contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids and abundant antioxidants. For centuries, local tribes have used it as a source of nutrition, rejuvenation, energy, focus and sustenance.
For more than 15 years, Guayaki has been working to make organic, fair-trade Yerba Mate the mainstream energy source of choice. The company sells Yerba Mate in many forms including bottled cold drinks, energy shots, tea bags and loose leaf tea. With its newest expansion into sparkling beverages, Guayaki hopes to make this unique energizing ingredient available to a broader range of consumers.
Guayaki works in partnership with indigenous and local communities in the South American rainforest to provide, market and sell sustainably-grown yerba mate products. Yerba mate is a rainforest tree whose leaves are harvested and dried to create a naturally caffeinated beverage with the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea and the euphoria of chocolate. For centuries, yerba mate has been the national drink of Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay where, today, nearly 45 million people consume it daily. Guayaki is the only U.S. provider of certified organic, rainforest-grown yerba mate and accounts for an estimated 55% of the US yerba mate market (including supermarkets, convenience stores, internet sales and Latin markets.)
