Delicious Yerba Mate... I love it and drink it every day. I really enjoy this company's products and its customer service was EXCELLENT!! Thank you Guayaki!
Mate is part of my morning, first thing. I look forward to it, and it always hits just the right spot. I get the flavor I want, I get all the health benefits I need. When I'm on the road and I can't get it, I miss it all day long.
Thanks Mate! You do good things for my life!
I have been ordering my tea from Guayaki for many years now and I have always enjoyed drinking my tea with a little honey and Splenda as it helps me get a good start on my day. Since the company put a new, local warehouse near my house, my orders arive within 1-2 days of my order and always fresh and tastes great.
Great quality loose Yerba Mate, wonderful packing and shipping speed.
Definitely will come back and buy more!!
I have been drinking Guayaki Traditional
Mate, since returing home from the war in Iraq.
I can say without hesitation that
Mate has helped ease the symptoms of post
traumatic stress disorder. Thank you Guayaki for offering healthy alternatives
for herbal teas.

First of all, let me say I LOVE Guayaki - I love the company, what it's doing, the effect it's having on the local economy and people...
I had originally planned to order a 1lb. bag of the Traditional, which, after getting a variety of 5 1lb. bags of the other flavors (which are all great), Traditional is still my favorite. But they were temporarily out of the 1lb. bags, so I decided to bite the bullet and spring for the 5lb. bag.
It was a life-style/standard of living decision. I function so much better with my Yerba Mate every day.
Great choice! This bag is going to last me a loooonnnngggg time, the bag is resealable so I can store in right in it's own bag in a small box, and I have saved so much money! They sell it for $19.20lb. for loose bulk at the local co-op. Do the math. And I'm good for 2013, at least.

Great service, great product! Thank you for all the work you do also to sustain our planet and her people!
I was drinking it from a french press. Loads of energy. Skin looked better. Then i got a bombilla and was drinking it cold (terere).
Its nice because its a long lasting energy and id say less addictive than coffee and even tea because you dont need to drink it constantly.
It has a nice invigorating effect. Unfortately i ran out and now am back to coffee/tea.
I often think of getting some more. I enjoy the terere method.
Love Love Love the way my day starts- a few cups of Yerbe Mate and I am good to go- when I went in for my annuall check up my Dr. wanted to know what I was doing to have such a great blood panel! Yerbe Mate!
