About Brazil

Brazil has a wet, fully tropical climate. Much of Brazil is tropical rainforest, and this rainforest is threatened by deforestation due to development, logging, and clearing for agriculture.

Brazil grows a small amount of tea, including in a garden owned by Yamamotoyama that grows Japanese-style green tea. Brazil is also an important source of a number of plants used in herbal teas, such as Lapacho. Brazil is also the origin of Yerba Maté, one of the few caffeine-containing plants other than tea and coffee, and a popular caffeinated tea-like drink.

Perhaps more importantly, Brazil is a vast reservoir of biodiversity, including a myriad of plants with potential uses in medicine, food, and undoubtedly herbal tea, many of which have not even been discovered or documented yet.
