“We came to the realisation that not many people in Australia knew of the magical South American herb – Yerba Maté. So why not create a new type of energy drink to share with the Australian market. One that was all natural, organic, low sugar, naturally caffeinated, and most importantly, really tasty!!”

About Naturally Driven

Founded in 2019, Naturally Driven is the brainchild of two friends who are passionate Yerba Mate enthusiasts. While on the dance floor at a festival, Luke and Aliy contemplated why Australia was lacking options for low-sugar, non-alcoholic, organic beverages that contained natural energy with real health benefits – so they made it their mission to source and refine their own version!

So, what exactly is Yerba Mate?

Think of it as the cooler, hipper cousin of green tea. It’s a traditional South American drink made from the dried leaves of the Yerba Mate plant. Known for its earthy flavour and invigorating effects, Yerba Mate is a popular alternative to coffee and tea. It’s been a favourite of South Americans for centuries, but it’s just starting to take off here in Australia. One of the things that sets them apart from other companies is using real, steeped Yerba mate in their blends. Unlike other companies that use extracts, steeping the plant allows them to lock in all of its incredible nutrients and flavour.

Here are some of the ACO-certified organic Yerba Mate teas you can order in our online store:
