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.
It's good but has a very strong chlorophyll taste to it. You'll get used to it though. Healthy right?

Love my San Mateo Mate! I love everything that I get from Guayaki for that matter, keep up the great work guys!
I am ordering this yerba from Germany; the delivery costs, and additional taxes make the price very high for me. However, even then it is really worth its price, as this fresh, tasty,dust-free yerab is the best Yerba I have ever got.

Love it- Keep up the great work!
I don't need to say anymore! This is a high quality product for a great price, especially if you buy 2 bags at a time when they are on sale. The customer service, packaging and shipping were all fantastic as well. Thanks again! Will continue to do business with you!
My husband and I have been buying the one pound bags of our favorite San Mateo organic air dried Yerba mate for a couple of years. We just started buying the five pound bulk bags, which is already saving us money and a lot of extra trips to the store, which feels great. Thanks Guayaki!
The best yerba mate! It's really gentle on my stomach and I appreciate the packaging as well. I used to order the regular one, tried also the biodynamic one, but this is my favorite because is the gentlest on my stomach. Will definitely order again.
I enjoy San Mateo mate every day. I also enjoy green tea every day too. Every so often I also drink African red tea and also various herbal teas, also ginseng. The most important for me is San Mateo mate by Guayaki. It has a delightful taste and is energizing. I feel like I am in on a secret, I can't understand why more other people don't get hip to it. They're just missing out. For me, it's irreplaceable.
I'm a longtime drinker of mate, starting with a gourd but normally using a tea press. I've primarily enjoyed the original blend but also tried several others and the San Mateo is my favorite. It's a little brighter like an earthy green tea. I prefer to let it steep only a very short time, a minute or less, so it's not too strong and I can enjoy several cups.
I really enjoy this product, either hot or cold. For every 3 cups of the mate I put in one packet of Truvia. I like it a little sweet. Enjoy!
