Brasil Green Yerba Mate is rich in caffeine and was used as a caffeine beverage in Latin America before the advent of coffee.
Yerba Matte is called `The drink of the gods` by many of the indigenous people of South America who have brewed it for centuries.
Mate leaves are processed somewhat like tea leaves. The tips of the branches are cut just before the leaves reach full growth and the leaves are steamed and dried (in fired mate the leaves are dried over fires). The dried leaves are sifted and allowed to age in order to enhance the flavor of the mate. The caffeine content of mate is comparable to that of mild Arabica coffee.
