GENUINE HIGH QUALITY
For PUERTO MATE® Tereré we only use mate from our own plantation in Argentina. The high quality is characterized by outstanding taste and is also confirmed by independent laboratory tests.
A METHOD CATCHES ON
When it comes to the raw materials for our mate tea, we at PUERTO MATE® leave nothing to chance. The nursery of our partner company PINDO produces about 1 million seedlings annually. During the completion of his doctoral thesis, managing director and partner of the nursery, Dr. Ing. Rafael Scherer, developed a new mate variety with excellent taste and product features.
At PUERTO MATE® we believe that “fairness” and “sustainability” should not be simply seals of approval, but should be self-evident. Since the mate harvest must be brought in by highly trained employees and is heavy manual labor, all our workers are fairly paid and comprehensively covered by social welfare insurance. Good work is rewarded with above average wages, providing employees and their families a good living standard and making home ownership possible.
Our careful drying process ensures that no toxic hydrocarbons are produced during drying. Only the ingredients for which our mate is highly regarded remain.
In addition to its delicious taste and aroma, mate tea is said to have a whole host of therapeutic properties. The ingredients stimulate the nerves, muscles and metabolism. The caffeine in mate tea has an invigorating effect and supports circulation, which has made mate tea a popular antioxidant tea that is considerably healthier than energy drinks, coffee and similar beverages.
