This herbal secret from South America has just recently begun to make its appearance on the global stage. Fresh, vibrant and stimulating, yerba maté has enjoyed centuries of use in South American countries like Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Today, its fresh, intriguing flavor and moderate caffeine levels give yerba maté a rising popularity in the rest of the world.

Made from the leaves of the yerba maté plant, the drink is often simply called “maté” in its native countries, where it is consumed more than coffee and tea combined. Yerba maté is traditionally drunk from a hollowed out gourd, often decorated with elegant designs, and is shared among friends as a symbol of closeness.

As for its vitamin offerings, yerba maté contains vitamins C, B1 and B2, all important vitamins for daily health and nutrition.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas Logo

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.

Trees For Us

Our “Tea for Trees” campaign creates a sustainable model that restores one of our most precious resources while offsetting the paper used in our products.

By giving back whenever possible, Buddha Teas strives to honor the earth and its many blessings. Help us plant trees while enjoying an unadulterated tea that’s healthy for you, and our planet. Read more about it here.
