Need a pick me up? Join us for Maté Monday in front of Grand Central Café from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Guayaki was recently commended in People magazine’s March edition of Style Watch: “This is a natural source of caffeine that people are turning to instead of energy sodas.” Come and sample the new line offered at Grand Central Café – Guayaki Yerba Maté. Guayaki Yerba Maté is organic, fair-trade, and certified Kosher.

In South America, Yerba maté has been revered for centuries as the “drink of the gods” and is drunk daily for optimum health, sustained energy and mental clarity. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: Yerba maté, coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa, and guarana, Yerba maté triumphs as natures most balanced stimulant, delivering both energy and nutrition. The leaves of the rainforest mate tree naturally contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants. In fact, The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society in 1964 concluded "it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value" and that Yerba maté contains "practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life."

Can’t make it to Maté Monday? Samples will also be available at the Sustainable Lunch on Tuesday, March 20, 2007 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Towers Dining Hall.
