This yerba mate is one of the best that I have had, when made properly. It is shade grown which brings out a much smoother taste that most of the farm grown mates. I steeped this about 10-15 times in a traditional Argentinian gourd
Wild Harvest Yerba Mate
We understand the terms taste and quality are rather subjective by nature. Personal preference plays a big part in determining those attributes. We don’t want to claim that our yerba mate is the best or better than ABC brand. We simply want to project a message that our yerba is different than traditional yerba produced by most South American companies. It is grown differently, harvested differently, and processed differently than any of the other yerba coming from our neighbors to the south. If you peruse our website, we hope that you get the same feeling from our pictures, testimonials, and literature. We apologize in advance that we don’t carry the traditional yerba packaged among a dozen different South American brand names. We concentrate on doing one thing well, and that is to provide you with an all natural Wild Harvest, pure leaf yerba mate product. Enjoy….
Aviva is one of a few companies that harvests, imports, and packages bulk mate from South America. We blend and package our mate under the Aviva brand name which is then distributed to wholesale accounts across the country or sold directly to consumers around the world. This control of the supply chain allows us to insure the highest quality standards during every step of production. Additionally, our yerba is a fresh vivid green color, not a stale yellowish tone. Like typical wine, yerba doesn’t necessarily get better with age (although producers stuck with an oversupply that’s been sitting in their warehouse for months or even years would like for you to think that!).
