Drink Spotlight: Erva Lavender Sage Yerba Mate



Imagine running your hands across clouds of lavender, with an occasional herbal breeze drifting through the thick trees. You breathe deeply and take it all in. That's what opening a Lavender Sage Erva feels like.


The benefits of yerba mate tea continue to gain recognition and appreciation through our one of a kind, hand brewed blend - Erva Yerba Mate.
Replacing your coffee with yerba mate tea will keep you focused, energetic, and alert throughout your day while maintaining balance in mind, body, and spirit. Our all natural and organic tea blend incorporates rooibos tea, rose hips, lemongrass, and lemon verbena along with yerba mate straight from South America. Those 5 core ingredients make Erva Yerba Mate an excellent energy and immunity booster, free-radical fighter, stress relaxer, digestion improver, and even appetite reducer.


Let's see what lavender and sage add to the mix: 

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Soothes skin conditions (acne, dry, or irritated skin) and boosts brightness!
  • Promotes healthy bones and hair
  • Boosts immune system
  • Reduces risk of heart disease
  • Extra boost to digestive health

About the company

In October 2014, Erva's founder, Elliott Counts, tried yerba mate for the first time. "I remember seeing everything in full vibrancy. Everything was a little bit brighter, and I felt just a little bit lighter. I started buying bottle after bottle of Guayaki's Raspberry flavor." At the time, Elliott wasn't aware that loose-leaf bags of yerba mate were available, but he finally found a box of individual tea bags at Trader Joe's.

Taking a handful of tea bags, he would cut the tops off of them and pour them into a drip coffee pot. He would cut herbs like sage, rosemary, and oregano from his garden and mix in fruits like raspberries and sliced strawberries mainly to "...see what would happen."

About the Company
The beginnings of our company had to do with the fact that a product didn’t exist, so someone needed to make it.

In Snowbird, Utah in the late 1990s, on-the-go energy products still lived in the world of “engineered ultra-power-foods”, with science fiction-esque sounding ingredients.

Our founders were up there, working as little and playing as often as they could. Besides being mountain junkies, they knew a thing or two about real, whole food. They knew the power of raw ingredients and started to experiment with healthy, vegan snack creations.

Soon, their friends and then the town of Snowbird were PROBAR people. A hunger-destroying bar that’s made from pure nutritional goodness, with no chemical additives—it’s no surprise the locals were among PROBAR’s first hardcore fans. The buzz was contagious. After hitting the mountain hard, people were recharging with PROBAR. We had a local test kitchen, and were off and running.

Our company’s goal is to change how the world thinks when it comes to real, whole food. PROBAR products are proof that a food maker can wholeheartedly commit to quality, sustainability—and sheer deliciousness. Part of the Simply Real® promise is sourcing the finest all-natural, 100% vegan organic ingredients from growers who believe in these things as well. As you check out our products, they all have one thing in common: they started with only the best raw ingredients.

The reason for our success is simple - Integrity. Compared to other bars, PROBAR tastes better and contains high quality ingredients. From the beginning, PROBAR has remained committed to convenient, natural, high-performance nutrition. PROBAR has never strayed from the integrity of our original recipes.

Us real food lovers need to stick together!
