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've been drinking mate every morning for about nine years, and take my loose leaf with me when I travel or go horse camping. I don't know how it works, but I feel good, have energy, and don't get sick. I drink it with a tiny amount of lemon juice, hot or cold. I love it.
This is the only brand of mate worth drinking. With the bulk discount and email specials it makes the price affordable for everday use.

As always, I appreciate your high quality and great tasting mate, the fact that you ship for free when I order the 5 pound loose-leaf bag, that you are using a new bio-degradable bag and that you ship quickly. So, thank you -- THANK YOU!
I have used mate for almost 6 years now, i use it daily, I find that my days go smoother, I have more energy, and less fatigue than days when I use coffee, or don't drink either. It is also proving to be useful as a weight loss device.
I have been drinking this tea for more than 8 years now and I have always enjoyed drinking this tea with some honey and splenda or sugar. I will drink about 2 - 4 pints every morning and it always leaves me with a good, clean feeling all day, wakes me up, and does put me on a crash course from a caffine high as coffee does.
This tea is also great as a iced tea during the day; just steep it, let it cool and add some ice cubes with sugar or splenda and a slice of lemon if you want, and you are good to go as great iced tea.
I ordered my Mate last week from our local co-op, it was due to arrive on tues.
I went to pick it up and voila! out of stock. With only a one day supply remaining I went home and ordered from you guys that night.
It is now Thurs. noon and my Mate just showed up Via UPS. I am oh so pleased.To
due biz with folks who are on the ball

I tried Yerba Mate tea when I couldn't drink coffee anymore because it was too acidic for my system. I liked it right away.
In the beginning I bought small boxes at the local health food store. But In 2005 my husband retired and we became fulltime RV travelers. That is when I started to order my Yerba Mate in bulk so that I could have it available no matter where we were in the country. I wouldn't want to run out of my Yerba Mate.
Guayaki has always shipped my purchases in a timely manner and the product has always been great! I am a very satisfied customer and happily recommend them to others.
