As a Singapore brand MATE MATE is going global by bringing our naturally caffeinated sparkling drink from the heart of Asia to the rest of the world.
With its roots traced back to Berlin (Germany) and Argentina in South America, we unite the core elements of MATE MATE:
South American Vitality & Heritage with Berlin's Urban Diversity & Versatility.
MATE MATE is made from leaves of the Maté Tea plant (Yerba Maté ) that originates from South America, most prominently Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay.
Originally consumed by steeping the tea leaves into hot water, our modern version of Maté Tea has evolved into a lightly carbonated drink that’s best served chilled.
Already in the 80-90s Maté carbonated drinks had developed a following among computer hacker circles and tech start-ups - all working long hours.
Then as the birthplace of electronic and techno music, Berlin celebrated its booming with Maté energy drinks in the 90s. As a witness to the greatest street party in history – Love Parade – Mate drinks energized millions during the festival. Since then, Maté drinks flooded into the clubbing and music scene not only in Germany.
