Leaf Style (Despalada o Despalillada)
There are three common blends of unflavored yerba mate that one can buy: Traditional, Smooth, and Leaf-Style.
Leaf-Style: less than 1% stems (also called "Sin Palos" or "Despalada"):
- Leaves contain the most nutrients.
- Stronger flavor
- Produces more compression around the bombilla, allowing for better nutrient extraction.

Of course, we also have a huge selection of flavored yerba mate and the most popular weight loss blend.
