Great mate, excellent service. If your used to store bought lose leaf mate then this will be less smokey as it is not smoked to dry it, thus removing the step in product creation that puts carcinogens in your mate.

I drink this every morning, and have done so for the past 6 years. I've tried other brands and some of the flavored mate blends, but none compare to this loose leaf mate as a daily staple for reliable, good flavor and steadfast effect.
In all the years I have drinking mate, Guayaki continues to be the best I've had. When I got into yerba mate, I started off with all the South America brands and had a pretty good idea of what is out there. But a friend turned my head to consider Guayaki and I haven't turned away since. Consistent quality in how the mate is processed â just the right balance in particle size from leaves to very small amount of stem. Flavor never changes and is always enjoyable, so it's one of the few things in life that doesn't let you down!
I've been drinking mate latte's every morning for years now: three mate shots brewed in our espresso machine mixed with steamed almond milk. I haven't counted, but I'm pretty sure we've been through more than a dozen five pound bags by now!
Every morning, I get up and drink a big glass of waterâ¦.and then we brew our loose-leaf mate in a French press and enjoy it! Great way to start the day! We buy our Yerba Mate loose-leaf 10 pounds at a time. It lasts us for several months and is very cost-effective.
We love our morning cup of Guayaki Yerba Mate, and the organic/biodynamic aspect of it is very important to us, as is the way it is fairly and sustainably harvested. Thanks, and we loved the extra commemorative tin as an exquisite bonus!
Really wonderful and very fast delivery.
I have made several 25 pound purchases over the years from Guayaki. Needless to say I am a huge fan. I started drinking Yerba Mate about 14 years ago when I came across it at Good Earth market in Fairfax CA. I am probably one of the first devotees of this company. Nothing but high praise for their products and service. I love, love, love Guayaki Yerba Mate.
