Mate Factor Yerba Mate is Fresh

In order to preserve as many fresh nutrients as possible, as well as the bright green flavour of the herb, we do not age our yerba maté. Most yerba maté is aged for 1 to 2 years according to cultural traditions from Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina, before being packaged. However, in Brazil, yerba maté is commonly preferred as fresh as possible. Maté Factor chose this style because it preserves the life-giving nutrients and the fresh green taste our customers love.

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 flavor and vibrance, in order to produce the best tasting, most nutritious yerba maté tea possible!

Maté Factor yerba maté is processed immediately upon harvest and vacuum packed into triple barrier, freshness sealed bags. Once the process is completed, our maté is trucked to port in order to be shipped out immediately. We do this because we love fresh yerba maté!

Processed in Low Heat with No Smoky Flavor

We cure our yerba maté using the CleanHeat® method we developed that keeps the maté free from smoke, preserving the vital nutrients & natural flavor of our herb. Our process protects natural enzymes insuring that the plant never reaches temperatures that would damage the natural constituents.

This careful process produces a bright, smooth flavor that makes Maté Factor yerba maté superb not only by itself, but also as a base for blending your own drinks, hot or cold.
