In 1976 Somensi brothers decided to expand their activities in the cultivation of yerba mate. Initially, the company sold only the erva mate and had no other products. Today, it operates all over Brazil, exports products to the Japanese, Paraguayan, German, Polish, French and South African markets and is recognized worldwide.

Indústria da Mate Laranjeiras is located in Laranjeiras do Sul, in the Brazilian state of Paraná. All their products undergo a rigorous inspection process. From harvest to transportation, the quality standards are followed to avoid any possible loss of taste, color or quality of the product.

Laranjeiras Tradicional

Fresh, green and simple - it’s not a chimarrão for every day, but if you are drinking mostly Argentine or Paraguayan mate Laranjeiras Tradicional can be somewhat fun, just for a change of pace. But that over-the-top simplicity, and unpredictable difficult cut can easily lead to frustrating experiences, so it’s hard for me to recommend this erva mate. If this is the only available erva mate for you - go for it, otherwise - there are more interesting and enjoyable Brazilian brands on the market.
