All about our name change and rebranding.
New Name, Same Vision
I have always loved mountains and ever since I was little, I have wanted a logo that incorporated them. During the summer as a kid, I was able to attend a summer camp right in the Alberta Rockies. When I was 14 I moved, but thankfully I was able to fly back to attend that camp every summer anyways. Every year, without fail, when I would drive from Calgary in the prairies, into the Alberta mountains, I would cry. I could not hold the excitement, the love, the awe and the wonder inside me. As I grew, my love for mountains grew too.
The feeling that you get from standing on the top of a mountain is like no other. Peaceful and relaxed, but full of energy. Empowered to make a difference and in awe of the beauty of this world, the clarity you feel when being surrounded by untouched nature is life changing.
This is what I want to bring into my business. I want to make others feel peaceful and relaxed, but give them the energy to get up and go. I want to empower my customers to make a difference in the world. I want to motivate others to care for the nature and beauty we see on this earth. I want to give energy and motivation together to show my customers that our products are making a difference and I am excited to begin on this journey and take everyone with me.
In many countries, Yerba Mate is actually prepared with cold water. This is known as Terere.
The main difference between Terere and Yerba Mate Ice Tea, is that the water with ice tea is first prepared hot and then cooled; Terere uses cold water to begin with.
