BROOKLYN MATE is an organic, lightly sweetened carbonated beverage. We brew premium pure-leaf yerba mate to triple strength concentration—never from extract—honoring the herbal traditions of South America. Ginger, agave, lemon, and hints of vanilla are added to complement the rich yerba mate flavor.
BROOKLYN MATE gets its powerful source energy from yerba mate (pronounced mah-tay). This South American plant contains a unique combination of naturally-occurring xanthines responsible for BROOKLYN MATE’s uplifting effect. These xanthines are the active ingredients in coffee (caffeine), green tea (theophylline), and dark chocolate (theobromine). This one-of-a-kind blend creates a warm, clarifying effect that will sustain throughout the day.
BROOKLYN MATE was made for the rigorous days and endless nights of the city.
In South America, I had discovered an herb that gave uplifting energy lasting the entire day. There was no crash, no jitters, and no chemicals. I wanted to bring this power home to Brooklyn.
The first BROOKLYN MATE was made for friends out of my apartment kitchen. What started as a personal passion grew into the larger mission of improving the way we source our energy.
Sustained, natural energy that tastes good is a reality.
