Origin: South America
The herbal yerba mate plant is native to South America, where it was first brewed and served as a stimulant by indigenous tribes. You'll find it's particularly popular in the central and southern parts of the continent, where it's a social drink served as a stimulant and sipped from gourds.
Herbs in a Gourd
Yerba mate takes its name from the Spanish word for herb – "hierba" – and the Quechuan word "mati", meaning "drink" or "gourd". Travelling around South America, you may well be offered a gourd of the legendary brew shared among friends – one sip, and they say you'll be jumping from tree to tree.
Our Fruit and Herbal Infusions
None of our fruit and herbal infusions contain the Camellia sinensis plant used to make tea. Instead, we've blended our own combinations of fruit, flowers, herbs and spices to create extraordinary new flavours, from jammy brews like Very Berry Crush to delicate evening infusions like Dreamtime.
