Mate tea is a cultural icon in South America — it’s known as the beverage of friendship and that’s what inspired us to carry our own blend of mate, sourced thoughtfully from Brazil.
Many tea drinkers like mate because the caffeine is very smooth as compared to black teas. If you’ve had trouble with caffeine before, you might enjoy mate.
The tea itself is toasted and has a slightly smoky flavor; we pair it with fresh orange peel and a variety of spices to enhance the flavor. This makes an amazing tea latte, especially with a hint of sugar or honey for balance. Or prepare it like traditional masala chai — we think you’ll love it.
We call this our Stargazer blend because when making it, we were inspired by the tribal rituals of South American cultures, and we think about the beautiful sights and gorgeous night skies (with different stars than in the Northern Hemisphere!) when sipping it. Allow the cool, calm, collected caffeination to open your mind and connect you to the best version of yourself and your most creative ideas.
