My husband and I were following a diet that recommended Yerba Mate' to help with energy since it was a very low calorie diet. Well, day one...we loved it. I drink it hot, my husband drinks it cold. We order 10 pounds at a time online so we always have it. It's delicious and healthy for you. Does not give you caffeine jitters and you can quit skip drinking it for days without getting a head ache. I have turned on many of my friends and they too are grateful. Wonderful product!

I have been drinking this tea daily for about 13 years now and continue to enjoy its benefits! I have tried other brands but always return to Guayaki because of its purity and high quality! Thank you for making it available!
I think the headline says it all. I've been drinking Yerba Mate for over five years. How can you not like a company that looks to help the environment and delivers a quality product?
I have this tea every day. It is delicious and I can't imagine a day without it! That is why I ordered it in bulk.
I have loved this traditional mate for well over a decade. Traditional remains my favorite & the ethical company continues with their top quality, high standards, and excellent service. In All my orders over many years, I have never been disappointed.
I drink Yerba Mate about four times a day. It picks me up, doesn't give me a buzz, and keeps me going throughout the day. I drink it with honey and almond milk.
This is my favorite everyday drink, gives me energy, antioxidants and tastes awesome. I mostly fix this as iced tea. I bring 8-12 oz. of water to a boil, add 1 1/2 Tbs. tea, let steep for 6-8 min, strain or use French press, add 1 Tbs. honey to the hot tea, then add ice. Yummy!
Okay, it's true. I LOVE Guayaki. This is an awesome company. I have been buying 5lb bags of traditional Mate for about a year and I could not be happier. The mate is top quality. The company is great and so is the service.
Thanks so much for being awesome Guayaki!
I have really enjoyed the traditional yerba mate, I would like to try the guacho furte next, thanks for your great product!

I drink mate every morning when I wake up. I make a big teapot, drink 2 cups at home, then put the rest in my insulated cups (yes, I take two) to drink at work.
I like my mate hot, with a couple of drops of lemon juice. I don't get sick, get colds or ever miss work due to being ill. I attribute that to my daily mate. My co-workers get sick, but nothing seems to get me down.
I've been drinking mate for over 10 years, and think I will be ordering it as long as I live.
