Hitting the Shelves: When Caffeineís Not Enough -- August 2008
One company has created a natural alternative to rival even the most energetic of energy drinks.
Pixie Maté Organic Energy tea combines the goodness of antioxidant-rich green tea with the energizing effects of the South American herb, yerba mate. Acclaimed for its vitamin, mineral and antioxidant-rich makeup, yerba mate is derived from the leaves and stems of the mate tree grown in the rainforests of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. Claiming to provide a boost of energy that is “balanced, not frantic,” Pixie Maté provides enough naturally occurring energy to rival that of two Red Bull energy drinks. In a market flooded with chemically engineered energy drinks and supplements, Pixie Maté offers consumers a natural alternative with an organic formulation that also provides six times the antioxidants of traditional green tea.
