Organic yerba mate tea is both grown and produced without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Companies that use organic methods often have a very moral attitude to business. They usually support forest regeneration and fair trade practices.
The flavour is more intense and the product is much purer than yerbas produced with the aid of pesticides. It is believed that organic yerba mate tea has a higher nutritional value to non-organic yerba. This is because in the absence of pesticides, plants have to increase their levels of the phytochemicals. These are the vitamins and antioxidants- which are a plant’s natural defence mechanism to bugs and disease.
