We have videos of how to prepare mate!

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.
Every time I order my Yerba Mate it is delivered by the next day, great service!!
I think it's the best and will continue to use it.

I have been enjoying this drink and use about five cups in the morning. I never need to add anything to it.
My wife and I always start each day by sharing a pot of freshly brewed Mate. Mine with honey and my wife goes bold with nothing added. Each cup gives the clarity we need to take on work or weekend fun for 10 years plus. We have looked no farther than Guayaki for all our mate needs!
I would just like to say how much I enjoy my Mate! I make a big pot of it with some mint, lemon and a bit of honey and enjoy it throughout the day. My mind, body and soul are so very grateful!
When I ordered this it seemed like a huge amount! We will blow through this in a month! Mate is the new Coffee here!
Excellent product, beyond the health benefits- its just plain good stuff.
Thank you very much,
This is a big, beautiful bag of awesome yerba. We love it and I love having plenty to share. Mate makes you feel good all day!
The reason I purchased 5 pounds of this tea, is because I had already tried it and found it to be the best, and it's healthy.

Not sure how many years I've been ordering the loose leaf 5 lbs bag of mate? After visiting Agrentina and having mate, I've returned to the US as a HUGE fan! With every bag and every gourd I'm able to go back and revisit my Agentinain trip! This is a must for every fan that wants to become closer to one's inner self! Enjoy!
I regularly order loose leaf yerba mate in 5 lb. bags so I never run out of it. I think it's the best way to do it. On occasion I run out and forget to order and I end up buying something else at the store in the meantime. Every time I do that I end up appreciating Guayaki even more. There's a huge difference in the flavor and quality of the experience.
The delivery is always prompt and flawless. Great company, great product, great service.
