My name is Ana Goldseker and for me, Argentina has always been magical. Since I was a little girl, at each family gathering, I remember my grandmother, my aunts and my mother sharing yerba maté tea with me. In fact, yerba maté was always shared and is the great equalizer. All generations -- moms and dads, aunts and uncles -- sat around a table, shared yerba maté, stories, updates, heartbreak and laughter.
This precious baby…that’s me! My father took this in Argentina before we immigrated. I drank maté when I was little and always have. My daughter has too.
When I was pregnant and told to ‘quit the coffee,’ I turned to yerba maté. Yes, it has caffeine, but the caffeine is quite different from the caffeine in coffee. It is a healthier drink chock full of minerals and probiotics. Since the pregnancy, I’ve never gone back. Forget your lattes, your energy drinks, your bottled teas… yerba maté is for real. Talk about energy boosting, health promoting, anti-inflammatory and craving reducing. Yerba maté is where it’s at.
Today, I have used my 20+ years of in nutritional counseling, and experience as a personal chef, to create organic yerba healing blends. That’s because in addition to loving it, I’ve learned how incredible it is.
Yerba maté has incredible synergistic properties. That means, any herb you mix it with, will have increased effects. It’s also an herbal "booster." That’s why our unique blends are mixed with different herbs for specific healing effects. We use turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and other herbs in our blends.
Thank you for visiting Love from Argentina. I know once you’ve try our blends, you’ll be on the yerba maté journey too!
