This so called green gold maintains its beautiful color right from picking all the way to brewing, which is surprising as most teas change to a darker color through oxidization.

With effects which naturally suppress the feelings of hunger and thirst while adding the energy boost of caffeine it's no surprise why. So if you're looking for a powerfully potent tea than Mate may be for you. Try some mate teas for yourself and see if it's the kick you're looking for.
