May Update - A Short Note From The Desk of Dan...


In January of this year, Kiehl's, a legendary skin care company, launched a line of yerba mate infused skin care. They held a special event where fashion editors from magazines all over the world attended. During this event they served Aviva Wild Harvest yerba mate. We were honored to have Ellen Easton— one of the top tea professionals in the world— prepare, serve and educate the editors about Aviva. She is a wonderful person and has a vast knowledge about tea and other herbal tisanes. Below is a link to some of her writings and an article she wrote about Aviva and Kiehlís . Ellen is also an accomplished author. I highly recommend her book The Afternoon Tea Guide. - Ellen Easton's Article Index - Ellen Easton's Yerba Mate Article

Kiehlís was founded as an old-world apothecary in New Yorkís East Village neighborhood over 150 years ago. In 2000, they were purchased by one of the largest skin care companies in the world, LīOreal.

Little more than a month after the launch of their yerba mate skin care collection, I received a call from Kiehlís VP of Marketing. We talked for almost an hour about yerba mate in general. The next day I received another call from her and she invited me out to their corporate office in Manhattan. They wanted to know more about Aviva and my expertise in the yerba mate industry. To make a long story short, it was a wonderful trip. The Kiehlís people were fantastic. We had a good meeting, shared some Aviva yerba mate and they made Aviva their official mate of the Kiehlís office yerba mate café. What came out of these meetings is they want me to work with them as a spokesperson about the benefits of yerba mate so that people understand the many underrated and not highly publicized health benefits yerba mate possesses.

A big portion of Kiehlís business is in Asia. The official launch is in a week or so. So far, we have sent product to Kiehlís in Australia, Kiehlís Korea and Kiehlís of Singapore. It is pretty exciting for us to be associated with a company of this stature, and it is exciting to know that we are spreading this wonderful herbal tisane to other cultures in the world.

A couple of things I learned from my trip: I am a product man now. The products are fantastic. I use their body wash in the shower and their skin rejuvenator on my face. One major point I learned is that beauty starts skin deep. What we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on the surface.

Letís do a double attack on skin care— try out the Kiehlís product and enjoy a nice hot or cold cup of Aviva Wild Harvest yerba mate. Your skin will love you for it!

Did you know Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers drinks Yerba Mate?
excerpt from interview:

SW: You're an hour away from performing (Saturday night concert in Auckland)... What usually happens now?
AK: An hour and a half. First I have to eat a few hours before lest I throw up in my mouth while on stage .. it's a horrible thing and it happens sometimes even when I eat three hours before but it's such a physical exertion experience.. the singing .. the singing and the dancing and the jumping and the crashing about. You really have to digest your food before you get out there. So it starts with eating. Before that it starts with hydrating. Like the more water you can drink in a day the better. Your voice is going to hold up for a 2 hour show. Getting some sunlight during the day is very important& let it get inside your eyeballs so you feel all right and then listening to John DJ warm up his guitar is a really nice centring experience. And then I start eating some weird things like ginkgo and ginseng and maybe some Tribulis. About an hour before [the show] I start drinking some Yerba Mate. You know what that is? It's a South American coffee product & a mild stimulant. It's like caffeine, sort of.
