Aged Yerba Mate
What is Yerba Mate?
Yerba Mate is widely known as the source of the beverage called mate in both Spanish and Portuguese. It is traditionally consumed in central and southern regions of South America, primarily in Paraguay, as well as in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, the Chaco region of Bolivia and southern Chile. Yerba Mate has been used for thousands of years by the Guaraní Natives for stamina and as a natural remedy with numerous health benefits. Today people use yerba mate as a source of energy and it can be found in various energy drinks on the market.
Traditionally, mate is sipped from a natural gourd through a metal straw called “bombilla” Ymateina is proud to bring you Yerba Mate an more convenient way of drinking them.
YMateina is a dream we started in 2015. This project started with an idea from Pedro, President and CEO. It all started with the need and longing of home. That need to stay connected with his roots after leaving the country looking for the American Dream. To in live in a foreign land is never easy. Especially one with a different language and a different culture. Yerba Mate represented that connection a tradition that goes back for centuries.
That is how Pedro called is grandma and asked her of recipes for Yerba Mate. Recipes that have been passed by generations and with the help of a childhood friend, YMateina was born. Our mission is to create natural products that can lead to a healthy life choice starting with a morning ritual.
Soon after, Pedro adopted the trust of families and friends. His wife soon enough left coffee along with bringing many followers and started a movement. This adoption of believers soon established the “roasted mate”. Organically we have grown the sentiment of many individuals that are in constraint of coffee and other energy drink preferences. With this in mind, we soon shared our passion in helping others and partnered with other childhood friends. We teamed up and decided we need to share this with the world.
And just like that, YMateina was born.
