We believe that small can be beautiful. We believe in common sense, intelligent economies and in people over profits. We believe in truly fair trade and developing respect-based partnerships with our growers, our suppliers, our partners, and our customers.
We believe in the power of local communities and in the sustainability of relationships with the earth. To that end, we sell only the finest in native Yerba Mate from South America blended with all-natural ingredients from flowers to enhance the flavors in each bag or bottle of Thirsty Leaf whilst providing additional health benefits.
The roots of Yerba Mate grow deep in the heartland of South America, where it has been farmed and cultivated for thousands of years. Throughout the Tres Fronteras region, you can find this wonderful Holly tree from Paraguay to Brazil to Argentina. For the Guaraní people, who’ve lived there for millennia, Yerba Mate has served as a daily restorative, a balm, a medicine, and a central part of their spiritual ceremonies.LEARN MORE
Whilst making these choices does mean we often pay a little bit more for our ingredients, small changes such as these are the ethical choice and that by choosing to emphasize things such as Product Quality and Fair Trade Practices; buying locally wherever possible and clearly listing the many health advantages Thirsty Leaf Bottled Teas offer, we are able to assure our friends and customers that they can drink Thirsty Leaf with a clean conscience.
