It was one morning in the tiny kitchen of my beloved hi-top campervan that I decided to mix Maca, guarana and cacao with my morning Yerba Matè tea.
I think I knew right away that there was something special about this brew.
My intention wasn’t to create a drink to sell, I just really wanted a yummy morning drink that nourished my body and stimulated my mind. It was after drinking this brew for over a year before I realised that this was something I needed to share with the world.
My line in the sand moment after many years of drinking coffee was the realisation that it was causing migraines, amplifying my anxiety and wrecking havoc on my hormones. In theory once you realise this, it seems like an obvious choice to just cut it out completely. But as anyone that has had a love affair with coffee knows - it’s not always this simple. I was never quite sure if the the ritual, the taste or the warm fuzzy feeling it leaves you with that had me so hooked on coffee, so when I was creating an alternative - it had to satisfy all of these to make the cut.
In 2018 Lov Maté was launch with a batch of just 300 bags, with no real certainty of how it would be received I started sharing my story on social media. I knew it had changed my life, but I just had no idea how many lives this little brew was going to impact.
Lov Maté has come a long way from its humble beginnings but the purpose is still the same - providing a delicious and healthy energy alternative ☕️
Thank you for being here.
Much Lov, Sanae
