Well, Mother Nature played a cruel joke on many parts of the country by dumping over a foot of snow on the first day of Spring! In the last newsletter I had mentioned about how I am so ready for Spring to be here. Perhaps I should further characterize my wish by saying I want warm, sunny weather to accompany it!
We've updated our Yerba Mate FAQ to reflect two new studies pertaining to drinking yerba during pregnancy and yerba's potential to aid in diabetic treatment. The complete paper is in pdf format and may be download via this link: http://www.yerba-mate.com/yerbamate.pdf
Let's continue to spread the word about yerba mate and make it easier for all of us yerba enthusiasts to "get a leaf." Until the weather breaks, wrap your hands around a nice warm cup of yerba mate. Then we'll break out the Mate Splash and our Cool Summer Blends!
We want to hear from you! (and we'll try to make it worth your time!) We can stand up here on our soapbox and tout the benefits of drinking Aviva yerba mate 'til we're blue in the face, and that still wouldn't have the impact on a yerba newbie like hearing about it from a fellow consumer. As a result, we're asking for you to submit a testimonial about your experience drinking Aviva yerba mate. Why do you drink Aviva over other brands? Is it the Wild Harvest (organic) aspect? Is it the pure leaf consistency (vs. traditional sticks/stems)? Is it the variety of flavors we offer? The convenience of tea bags? Or is it perhaps our dedication to sustainable cultivation methods?
Whatever the reason(s) may be, if you could take a moment of your time to let us know, we certainly would appreciate it. To reward you for your time, we're going to choose one testimonial each month to receive a free 5lb bag of any of our blends (shipped to you at no cost, too!). By submitting a testimonial, you agree to allow us to use it for promotional material that may include website or newsletter publication. Please submit your entry to: GoWild@yerba-mate.com March winner will be announced next week. You still have some time to submit an entry.
March Special. . . For the month of March, you can purchase a pound of Passion Berry PLUS! teabags for $26. This is a limited time blend! Ninety-percent Wild Harvest Aviva yerba, 5% China Keemun black tea; 5% passion fruit flavoring, peach flavoring, and marigold petals. No promotional code is necessary. As always, free shipping on domestic internet orders over $35. Our storefront is a great place to start!
