Meta Mate "Craft Gehm LEAFY MELODY" (Moonshine Mate) - the real craft mate from Brazil
A hand crafted and leafy mate with stems and powder. Only a few hundred kilograms are harvested and produced in every cycle. The mate leaves are dried in the traditional way in the own Barbacuá oven, giving them a strong smoky note.
The product is vacuum packed to preserve the fresh and natural taste.
Meta Mate’s Moonshine Mates are harvested in the twilight under the full moon, processed before sunrise, using aromatic medicinal wood to dry the leaves. The producers respect the rules of nature and wait for the first frost to occur before the first harvest takes place.
For 4 generations the Family Gehm has been producing Mate in the South of Brazil and 20 years ago Vilsom Gehm transformed some of the increasing soya monoculture into mate forest. Their natural forests contain a rich and diverse ecosystem of Mate trees which are still harvested and processed by hand. The Family Gehm is the very first and still the only family in Brazil allowed by law to harvest and process mate in traditional small scale model.
