We have videos of how to prepare mate!
To watch the videos - click the icons below.
Place yerba mate in the French press. Add hot water and steep for 3-10 minutes. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp of loose mate per cup. First, moisten the mate with cool water to protect the nutrients and flavor, then ADD HOT (NOT BOILING) WATER.
Place yerba mate in filter basket, then brew. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp of loose mate per cup. First, moisten the mate with cool water to protect the nutrients and flavor, then run the machine as usual.
Yerba mate brews well in most espresso makers. Place 1-2 tbsp of loose mate in a double espresso portafilter. Pull a long shot for a total of 4 oz. Great for making mate lattés.
Mate Latte Recipe:
Brew an 8 oz. cup of Guayakí Yerba Mate. Add sweetener (sugar, honey, or maple syrup) to taste and 4 oz. of steamed milk of choice. Top off with milk foam. Makes a 12 oz. latté.
Yerba mate is traditionally prepared in a gourd and shared among a circle of friends. Welcome the moments of community born of your own mate circle.
Ive always enjoyed guayaki products and now that bulk yerba from guayaki is within a few dollars per 5lbs, when compared to all other brands, im excited to give even more support. However, it has proven to be more "dusty" than other brands :/

I drink mate brewed every morning
I just had a colonospocy and I am 71 years old
My doctor said to keep doing what I am doing because
For the first time in my life I didn't have any polyps he had to remove
I always had 4 or 5
I have IBS and the mate keeps me regular
I've been drinking a canteen cup of Yerba Mate for about 8 years now and can't imagine life without it.
The headline tells it all! This is our usual order!
what it is. better than coffee. thanks so much for doing this right - ethically, sustainably, etc - really great. still a chipper price too - 52.50 for 5 lbs of regular yerb'. keep it up!
Your bulk option saves us a lot of money. We absolutely love the product.
I have loved this tea for 15+ years! Me and my son drink it every day!
Hi Guayaki Folks,
Just want to let you know our Crew at Big Sky Brewing Company was turned on to your Yerba mate when the band Rebolution played in our back yard last August.
Thank you for making blending such a great product for those of us who don't care for coffee, we enjoy the lift and other benefits derived from such a tasty beverage while we are brewing beer.
Keep up the great work!
Website is easy to use...price is good with great discount for bulk purchases...and the wonderful tea is of course what starts out my every day.
... and repeat and repeat! I order pounds of Guayaki Traditional Yerba Mate, which is all I drink first thing in the morning. Recently there was a three-day power outage where I live and I could not heat water. Three days without my Yerba Mate! Really. Enough said. It was awful.
