We are very proud to offer this product in our catalog. By purchasing this product you enjoy a high quality yerba mate and help out small farmers!
This excellent Yerba Mate is harvested by independent producers in Obera ( Campo Ramon ), central part of Misiones, the land of Yerba Mate.
100 % Natural Yerba Mate without agrotoxics and with 24 months of natural aging. No chemicals added.
This company has been producing this top notch tea since 1990. When we met them, they said they wanted to stay "small" in order to keep the quality of the product.
Yerba production in Argentina is almost an oligopoly of four enterprises which concentrate 80% of all that's made and sold in the country.
Small farmers, usually organic producers, don't own the machinery to get through the process and have to sell their harvest to big producers.
A hard thing to achieve nowadays, especially after 22 years.
Luckily, we can still find some of them that can survive so we can enjoy the highest yerba mate tea quality and taste!
We personally think it´s a must try for those who love a medium & balanced taste.
Normally the aging process for the organic teas are longer than the regular
therefore the flavor and aroma is better.
It also makes the yerba mate less acidic.
Even though the prices for organic tea are higher, most people prefer the organic because of the health
properties and it is better for the environment.
The packaging material that is used with the organic teas is organic in itself as the paper that is used is recycled and biodegradable.
The ink is water based.
Organic teas have no pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. Also, they do not have artificial colors, flavors or ingredients of any kind.
Basically there are 4 types of Yerba Mate: Natural (some maybe roasted), Organic, Flavored and mixed with Natural Herbs. One IMPORTANT thing that contributes to quality is the aging of the yerba leaves; the longer the better.
