Yerba mate is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree. For centuries, mate drinkers have found tremendous invigoration, focus, and nourishment in yerba mate.
La Merced, certified 100% Organic, yerba-mate comes from a family – owned hacienda in NE Argentina that has been producing yerba mate since the 1920s. The mate bushes are grown in deep red soil using organic farming techniques, which means soil conservation, zero use of pesticides and herbicides and careful attention to every detail. The final product is a fine quality yerba, with a smooth, unsmoked, friendly flavor.
