Mate is considered to be the beverage of the Gods which South American Indians of the Guarani tribe have been using for centuries. Mate is collected by trimming the branches of the tree, whose leaves and buds are then lightly roasted, as a result of which mate retains a fresh, green colour and smoke-like aroma. Next the leaves are dried, crumbled, put through a sieve and sorted. Mate contains many different valuable substances including a complex of Vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2 and B, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, manganese, silicon, phosphates, sulphur, hydrochloric acid, chlorophyll, choline and inositol. Scientists have concluded that the ingredients of mate contain all the vital vitamins for life. Thus, it is hard to find a plant anywhere in the world that rivals mate for nutritional value.
It is brewed with Valmiermuiža artesian well water, accompanied by mate tea extract (Yerba mate leaf tea), which has long been known as a plant, which similar to black and green tea, contains caffeine, thus stimulating the body and enlivening the mind. The beverage gets its sweet caramel notes from special muscovado brown sugar cane with molasses, which is rich in potassium, iron, magnesium and calcium. This sugar not only accentuates the overall flavour of the beverage, but also gives it a hint of honeyed caramel. We enrich all this with carbon dioxide, producing a lightly carbonated tea beverage, which contains neither artificial sweeteners nor aromatizers.
