Yerba mate, peppermint, rooibos and cacao nibs are all herbs that have been used for centuries for their unique flavors and potential health benefits. When blended together, these herbs create a delicious and nourishing herbal tea that can support overall health and well-being.

One of the primary benefits of yerba mate is its high caffeine content, which can help to increase mental alertness and focus. This makes it a great alternative to coffee or other sources of caffeine, and can help to boost energy levels and improve cognitive function.

Peppermint, on the other hand, is known for its ability to promote digestive health and alleviate symptoms of indigestion. It has a refreshing and soothing flavor that can help to calm the stomach and promote healthy digestion.

Rooibos, also known as red bush, is a herb native to South Africa. It is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting effects. Rooibos tea has a mild, slightly sweet flavor and can help to support overall health and well-being.

Finally, cacao nibs are a rich source of antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds. They are also a good source of fiber, magnesium and other minerals that can support overall health. Cacao nibs have a rich, chocolatey flavor that can add depth and richness to herbal tea blends.

The caffeine in yerba mate can help to increase mental alertness and focus, while the peppermint can promote digestive health. Rooibos and cacao nibs provide a rich source of antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds, making this herbal tea blend a nourishing and delicious choice for anyone looking to support their health and well-being.

What is Yerba Mate?

Yerba mate comes from a holly tree native to the South American Atlantic rainforest. Yerba mate leaves are naturally caffeinated, with the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate.

Drinking yerba mate is a common social practice in Argentina, Southern Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

We focus on using regenerative farming and business practices when planting, harvesting, and selling our yerba mate.

What is Rooibos Tea?

Rooibos is unique because it is indigenous to South Africa’s mountainous region of Cederberg (just north of Cape Town), where it still thrives today. The rooibos plant, Aspalathus linearis, is a member of the legume family of plants that flourish in dry, mountainous regions with periods of significant rainfall. 

Like many herbal infusions or herbal teas, rooibos is steeped in hot water to make a herbal tea beverage. 

A handful of the words that can describe the flavor spectrum of sipping a rooibos tea are , sweet, woody, grassy, vanilla, floral, smoky honey, herbal and caramel. 

What are Cacao Nibs?

The word is derived from Theobroma Cacao, which is the taxonomic classification for the cacao tree. Cacao can be used to describe the pods, seeds and trees or the product once the bean has been fermented, dried and roasted. 

The cacao trees grow brightly colored pods that when broken open contain beans covered in a milky white substance. Once these beans are recovered and cleaned, they are fermented, dried and eventually roasted. After they are roasted, they can be broken up into pieces, which are called nibs.

Theorbromine is the alkaloid compound in cacao responsible for its stimulating effects. Much like caffeine, it is a heart stimulant. In contract to caffeine, cacao nibs give a longer, softer energy from theobromine without that peak and sudden dip that many people experience with caffeinated beverages like coffee.
