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 of 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. No crash, no jitters. Only smooth, focused natural energy.
BROOKLYN MATE was created in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As a California transplant, I found that the city's rigorous days and endless nights demanded sustained focus. Traditional energy drinks didn't cut it. Each coffee came with its crash. Tea was a little too light. [And redbull is unhealthy]
Then it hit me: Yerba mate.
In South America, I came across an herb that gave an uplifting energy boost that lasted the entire day. There was no crash, no jitters, and no chemicals. It was drank hot out of a gourd with a metal straw.
The first Brooklyn Mate was made in my apartment kitchen and was shared with friends. What started off as a personal passion has now turned into a greater mission. BROOKLYN MATE is changing the way we think about energy drinks.
Sustained, naturally-sourced energy is possible, and it can taste good.
