Yerba Maté is a shrub native to regions in Uruguay, southern Brazil, northern Argentina, and eastern Paraguay. It is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including carotene, vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B-complex, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin C complex, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, manganese, silicon, phosphates, sulfur, hydrochloric acid, chlorophyll, choline, and inositol. The Pasteur Institute did a study on the properties of Yerba Mate. Their conclusion was “it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to Maté in nutritional value. It has most all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life.”
So of course, CJ has to have it!!!

Dark Roast - ORGANIC
Our Dark Roast blend is quite possibly the perfect substitute for coffee. Rich, robust and energizing, Maté, when it has been roasted, is especially potent. Our touch of chicory increases the full-body flavour and aroma.

Cardamom Chai - ORGANIC
Cardamom plants grow in the monsoon forests of southern India. Known as the “Queen of Spices,” the prized seed pods have been sought after for thousands of years. Belonging to the same family of plants as ginger, cardamom has an intensely aromatic fragrance and a warm, spicy flavour.
Traditionally, the kings of India drank Chai that contained this flavorful spice. With yerba Maté as the base for our chaï, we’ve added the best of fresh cardamom and other spices to create a royal cup of tea, pleasant with milk and honey.
Cinnamon Rooibos - ORGANIC
Only found in the Cederberg region of western South Africa, Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) is becoming increasingly popular in the Western world.
It is caffeine-free and high in antioxidants, as well as naturally soothing and sweet to taste. Adding the unmistakable warmth of cinnamon, our Cinnamon Rooibos becomes a smooth and delicious beverage on its own or when served with a bit of milk and a touch of honey.
Enjoy this blend from the southern hemisphere: Maté from South America, Rooibos from South Africa and cinnamon from the islands of South Asia
Citrus Rose - ORGANIC
Known as the Rose of Sharon, hibiscus offers the delicate flower petals that give our tea its crimson colour. Citrus Rose is our Maté blended with the vibrancy of lemongrass, lemon myrtle and lime, delivering the tanginess of a zesty herbal tea.
High in Vitamin C, the added rose hips enhance the fruity flavour. Refreshing when served over ice on the hottest of summer days: a hot cup will also give you the sensation of overall warmth and vitality.
Lemon Ginger - ORGANIC
Refreshing and Healing
Indigenous to the coastal rain forests of eastern Australia, the lemon myrtle tree is often described as being “more lemon than lemon.” Its high citral content is what gives it that lovely and unique lemony aroma and flavour.
Complemented by warming ginger root, Lemon Ginger Maté is the perfect blend of the most common herbs used in folk remedies for the common cold. You'll find this tea not only healthy for you, but pleasantly revitalizing as well.
This tea is a refreshing summer favorite!
Mocha Mint - ORGANIC
Originally from the Mediterranean region, carob pods from the carob tree have long been known for their rich flavour and sweet aroma. These have been enhanced for our tea by carefully roasting the pods before they are ground.
Beginning with roasted Maté, we add just the right balance of roasted carob pods and stimulating peppermint for an invigorating, energizing cup of Maté, tasteful with milk and honey.
Mocha Mint is rich and refreshing. Many people love this as an after-dinner enhancer, or to enhance the social mood.
