While I'm on the topic of customer feedback, we periodically send out surveys to our customers to make sure we're providing the service and products that you expect from us. Well, it's that time again. We'd greatly appreciate it if you'd take a moment to respond to our quality survey by following the link below. As a small incentive, we'll enter everyone on this mailing list into a drawing for a chance to win a one-pound bag of yerba (blend of your choice) if we have at least a 50% participation rate. We'll draw 5 winners!

And morning, noon and night, before and after practices, before and after games, before and after dinner and before and after a tango, they will sit down with friends -- and even on-field foes -- for a round of yerba mate.

Mate (pronounced MAH-teh) is the beverage of choice, not only in Argentina, but also in Uruguay, Paraguay and southern Brazil -- and anywhere in America where people from those places live......[read more]

Our mission here at Aviva is to not only sell yerba mate, but to arm our customers with information and products to help them lead healthy lifestyles. With the many fad diets and misinformation floating around out there, it's difficult to determine what is going to help you maintain or achieve your wellness objectives.

Over the years, he's reviewed (and used) many philosophies and products on the market in regard to diet and fitness. Recently, he came across a gentleman who has spent his lifetime in the field of exercise biology and nutritional biochemistry. He's trained many professional athletes and driven them to the peak of human performance.

Dr. John Berardi has productized his knowledge and made it available to the general public through his company, Science Link. We're excited to introduce you to this warehouse of fitness knowledge and wisdom! We're so excited, in fact, we're going to give you a coupon for 10% off your next order of Aviva if you provide us a copy of your purchase receipt for one of his products.
