Mi Mate

Mi Mate is authentic yerba mate tea the way it's made in Paraguay - brewed with ice cold water, 25g of 2-year aged paraguayan mate and traditional infusions. Mi Mate refuses to establish new colonial dependency with Latin America. We will never fetishize or exotize Latin America to satisfy our nostalgia for primitivism. We will not use indigenous peoples as a brand or mascot. Mi Mate wants to make healthy, authentic, culturally competent yerba mate tea available to all. Mi Mate is yerba mate tea without all the extracts, natural and artificial flavors, preservatives, and sugar found in appropriated, americanized brands. Our hope is to democratize clean energy and increase access to sustainable, socially-responsible products.
