Maté is a tea-like drink that’s brewed from the leaves of the caffeine-rich, yerba maté plant. It's been enjoyed as a hot herbal tea for centuries throughout Latin America.
Like coffee, maté quality varies greatly depending on where it’s grown. Heyday source and blend two exceptional origins from independent farmers in South America, for a delicate, balanced soda. All they add is a pinch of sugar and bubbles for a refreshing drink to help you power through your day!
Heyday Maté is kinda similar to an iced tea, but less sweet, with more complexity, a subtle smokiness and a gentle fizz. The two origins used provide notes of green tea, stone fruit and a slight dryness.
- What other good stuff is in Heyday Maté?
Maté is naturally rich in caffeine (Heyday never add any additional or artificial caffeine), which is cool, but it's accompanied by two other nifty compounds, theobromine and theophylline, that help to amplify caffeine’s effects. Maté also contains higher levels of antioxidants than green tea. But there's nothing artificial in there. Zero. Zilch. Nil.
- Why’s Heyday Maté in a can?
Because nothing beats that feeling when you crack open a crispy cold can. Aluminium cans are infinitely recyclable and lighter to transport compared to glass. The cans are also made and recycled in the UK, so it was a bit of a no brainer really.
