August Monthly Special

Ginger Maté Matcha

Get powered up with this invigorating blend:

Popular amongst hikers in the Andes, Yerba Maté is known to increase physical endurance, curb the appetite, sharpen the mind, and assist the gallbladder in processing toxins from the body. It contains Vitamins A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), C, E and 15 amino acids, along with a high level of antioxidants. Yerba Maté contains a significant amount of Matteine which is similar to caffeine without the crash.

This is the base to our blend, we also steep heaps of fresh Ginger and blend it with a super verdant, Organic Japanese Matcha powder from Kagoshima Japan and add a touch of sweet local Honey from Lancaster bees. 

Only available iced, through August
