Hola! I'm Anas, the founder of Matély. In 2020, after quitting smoking, I found myself trapped in a cycle of coffee and soft drinks, searching for an alternative that wouldn't compromise my energy or alertness. That's when I rediscovered yerba maté, a treasure from the Amazon and my Syrian heritage, and it transformed my life.

What is Yerba maté?

Yerba maté is derived from the holly plant and was traditionally used by the indigenous people in South America. This herb is renowned for its natural caffeine content, which enhances mental clarity and focus without the typical crash associated with coffee. Yerba maté stands out due to its exceptionally high antioxidant levels, contributing to its metabolism-boosting properties and potential benefits in weight loss.

What makes Yerba maté unique is the social experience of consuming it. Typically, a gourd (a spherical cup) is passed around in a circle among family and friends, fostering a sense of community and connection.
