A family business established in 1996--spanning two continents and the influence of three generations--the Yerba Mate Tea Gourd aims to be your first choice for everyday yerba mate tea and most complete source for mate paraphernalia. We are artisans and importers, a family of travellers and explorers, North Americans and Argentineans, and it is our joy to share our knowledge and experience with you.
In keeping with our principles of quality, value, and tradition, we have shunned expensive online marketing and high-priced advertisements to keep bringing you the affordable quality you have grown accustomed to.
Most of our business comes from word-of-mouth and to attract that kind of business means our quality and service have to be of the highest standard. Are we meeting our goals? Let's hear from you and tell your friends!
We promote the time-honored quality and pride of craftsmanship behind the traditional art and ritual of yerba mate, the flavorful and consistent teas of the traditional yerbateros, and fresh ideas for a tea with a healthy future. Bringing to the world the full range of the traditional yerba mate experience~from the simple to the sublime~is our earnest goal.
