Just moved into my new place and am thrilled to have a 5lb bag of mate in the cupboard!!! Mate lattes with almond milk and maple are one of my most essential morning rituals. I love this daily connection to the rainforest and the people who harvest this special plant.

I've been a Yerba Mate fan for about 12 years now. I drink it every morning and every evening. It replaced that nasty coffee I used to drink. I love the flavor and the health benefits I get from this wonderful Mate. I would highly recommend to anyone with a desire to live healthier.
There's just no getting around the fact that, for me, the loose leaf organic traditional yerba mate is the smoothest deepest and last but certainly not least, most consistent experience. I order two 5 lb. bags at a time. It has always shipped promptly and without a hitch. I drink it first thing in the morning. I don't need a rocket launch but rather just a little boost to shake off the early riser cob webs.
My one complaint has nothing to do with the product but rather the pop-up video on every page I navigate to. I have to X it out over and over again and I find this intolerable. It's enough to drive me away from browzing the site altogether.
Thanks again you guys! Totallly pleased as always, I can't imagine my life without Guayaki Mate, and you bring it to the world, fast and friendly. Big Love Always!
I love my mate...every morning. I work with young children, and am exposed to constant colds, coughs and germs. My co-workers have noticed that I don't ever get sick or have to miss work. I tell them it's my yerba mate, every morning, that keeps me healthy and happy.
This mate is expensive but it is such a pure and clean taste it is worth it! And.. you help the cause! : D
Yerba mate is the best. Words cannot explain how great mat, is. If you have any doubt just try a pound of it and you will see the great affects almost immediately.
Buying 2. 5lb. Bags is the best deal. You save on the overall cost and get free shipping. The tea stores well, so buying in bulk is great. I have a pot of green tea every morning!
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've been drinking Yerba Matte for about 12 years now and have not found any better more nourishing, great tasting tea than Guayaki Yerba Matte. It's great hot, cold and anything in between. I just love it and could not be happier having it in my life.
The other companies marketing this product don't even come close to Guayaki. I've tried as many as I know about and so far yours is the very best!
Thank you so much for the quality you bring! Viva, Guayaki Yerba Matte and all the people involved in making it such a quality product. Thank You, Nancy
