Revel Berry has a delicious raspberry and blackberry flavor. It's easy drinking and clean tasting, and not too sweet.

16 FL. OZ.

HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE GUAYAKI?
Gway-uh-kee Yer-bah Mah-tay
ARE THEY ENERGY DRINKS?
Not in the traditional sense, but many people experience energy from drinking mate as well as clarity of mind. Each can has 150 mg of caffeine, which is equivalent to a cup of coffee.
WHAT IS YERBA MATE?
Mate has the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate. Yerba mate is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis).

WHERE DOES YERBA MATE COME FROM AND HOW IS IT MADE?
Guayaki Revel Berry
Guayakí (gwy-uh-kee) Yerba Mate (yer-bah mah-tay) is made from the leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree (ilex paraguariensis).
For centuries, South America's Aché Guayakí tribe have sipped yerba mate daily from a traditional gourd for its powerful rejuvenative effects. These rainforest people find tremendous invigoration, focus and nourishment in yerba mate and revere it as the "drink of the gods".
Guayakí's Revel Berry is a flavorful tribute to the Aché Guayakí and their legendary beverage. Rise up with Guayakí and share in this powerful rainforest experience!
Guayakí’s mission is to steward and restore 200,000 acres of South American Atlantic Rainforest and create over 1000 living wage jobs by 2020 by leveraging our Market Driven Restoration Model.
BevNET Review: The Revel Berry flavor of Guayaki's canned yerba mate line is a pleasant mixture of USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified ingredients including yerba mate, sugar, hibiscus, yumberry juice, and organic flavors. The product's flavor is like an exotic twist on raspberry iced tea, with the biggest difference coming from the earthy flavor of the yerba mate. It's smooth and clean, lacking the grassy flavor that you get from steeping your own cup of mate. Like the other canned offerings from Guayaki, this variety has 150 mg of natural caffeine per can, making it a pretty potent pick-me-up as well. The can features the same great format as Guayaki's other two canned varieties. In this case, the red accent color and illustration of a person are effective in terms of both catching the eye and helping the product achieve its authentic look. We're definitely fans of what they've done. Overall, a really well executed product that manages to be both mainstream and true to Guayaki's roots.
