Mate Factor is Unique

  • Fresh, not aged

Taste and Feel the Difference

The Factor

Taking care to preserve the herb's natural vibrancy, vitamins, enzymes, bio-active components and flavor is the factor that delivers this delicious product to you. Mate available today is typically aged for at least one year. However, we deliver something special — Fresh Yerba Mate, with all the secrets of nature still intact. We process out Mate immediately upon harvest, seal in airtight packaging, and rush export to preserve freshness.

Love Heat, No Smoky Flavor

We carefully dry our herb using a process that protects its vital nutrients and natural flavor, which is smooth and delicious.

We Trade Fairly

Mate Factor is founded upon and practices fair trading ethics. We have a personal friendship with our producers and enjoy helping increase the quality of life in their local communities.

A Treasure from South America Comes Home to You...

Discover Yerba Mate and Energize the Brazilian Way

Stands Out in the Crowd of Energizers

Mate enhances mental clarity, gives long lasting energy, while found by most to be free from the unpleasant side effects associated with coffee and other energizers.

More Antioxidants than Green Tea

Studies reveal Mate to be higher in antioxidants than green tea, partly due to its high Polyphenol content. Yerba Mate also contains vitamins including C, B1 and B2, as well as minerals important for metabolism including Chromium, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Potassium and Zinc. Our Mate is rich in bio-active compounds including Chlorophyll, Pantothenic Acid, Quercetin and Rutin.

Helps Manage Weight

Studies have shown that Yerba Mate stimulates the metabolism, helping people manage their weight.

I supremely enjoy this yerba mate product as part of my regimen! It is fresh and sells at a very reasonable price for its output. Secondly, it is certified organic. Plus, I enjoy the smooth alertness which activates in the mind and how it dispels lethargy. This mate delivers a consistent energy boost, so I feel that the energy can be well directed. Finally, this company supports mate culture through their various products. Overall a great buy!

it's good, don't use hot water because it will make the matte bitter

Best tea I have tried

Posted by Reviewer3163393 on Jul 29, 2013

I am drinking this tea a few liters every day, simply cannot go without it. It is a must buy, and Mate Factor is the best quality yerba mate we have tried. It is unsmoked (no carcinogens) and it is also fresh (not aged). What´s more, it is very professionally vacuum packed so it stays good for a very long time. Wherever I go, I take this tea with me and prepare it in the morning.

Great tea

Posted by Reviewer1812679 on Nov 03, 2013

Really enjoy drinking it. It really is an energy booster if you drink it strong enough. It doesn't have this smoky taste as other Mate tea I tried. That's good. It also doesn't make you jitter or feel depleted afterwards like strong coffee. Really high quality Mate. Can absolutely recommend it.

My first Mate

Posted by 5129223304988040680 on Dec 02, 2013

I purchased this tea as a replacement for my coffee. The leaf color is green, and the energy I get from it is better than that of the coffee I was drinking. I believe it's healthier as well. I will continue to buy.
