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.
This tea has literally changed my daily life. I was drinking coffee until I switched to yerba and I always had an upset stomach and would fall off the coffee buzz around 10am and feel like crap. Now I drink hot yerba in the morning and have an iced yerba twice a day it keeps my mind focused and my body feels great. I will buy this product as long as I can afford to.
I've been drinking Guayki Yerba Mate for 3+ years and absolutely love it. Days that I miss having my morning Mate are days that I should "start over".

I started drinking cheap Argentine mate brands. I initially hesitated buying Guayaki due to the price difference.
When I did try Guayaki, it was like night and day. Clean, organic goodness compared to cheap, pesticide ridden mate loaded with fillers.
I cannot get by on coffee anymore, I am hooked on loose leaf Guayaki Yerba Mate. I buy the 5lb. bags which last a little over a month and when I go on-line and order I get my new bag in about 4-5 days and sometimes fsater. I use a french press when having it and love the flavor from this method. I will be a customer as long as possible.
....been drinking and sharing Guayaki Mate since 2001!
Infinite gratitude for the health, joy, resilience and fortitude which this
vital plant enhances....
This company continues to prove itself worthy of highest regard.
Cheers to you all from the top of my bombilla to the bottom of my gourd :-)!!!
I love this stuff. Consistently very high quality, I always look forward to my morning gourd.
Thanks for being consistently great!
We recently decided to just go for it and buy 5 five pound bags at one time! After all, we drink it every morning!
