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.

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.

I am very satisfied with this order! It will take me quite a while to get through this bag. YAY! I love Yerba Mate!
Not only do I like the taste of my morning Mate' but I like to think of it connecting me to unknown beautiful people in unknown beautiful parts of our beautiful Earth!
I love my 5 pound bag of Traditional Yerba Mate. I make a french press pot every morning, and the big bag will last me a while. Very happy with my purchase.
Terrific nutritionally packed product!
The bulk qtty cuts the store price by $ 2.00
and saves us time and gas by receiving it right on our doorstep.
This is my second order of a five pound bag of tea. Very satisfied with the tea quality and the speed at which I received the order. Thank you, my wife and I both really like the tea.
My daughter introduced me to Yerba Mate about 6 years ago. I find the product to be very helpful on those days when I need a bit of an energy boost without having the "racing thoughts" that go with caffiene. Yerba Mate enables me to get the energy boost I need and still be able to keep a clear head and be in control. I just ordered a #5 bag and plan on using this product more and more. I'm actually hoping to eventually replace my coffee with the Yerba Mate.
Hi there--I have been drinking Yerba Mate for the last three years, and I always buy your brand! I used to get a box of tea bags at my local grocery store, but then last year I purchased a 1 pound bag online. I love it!
I was disappointed with the 5 pound bag, however. The minute I opened it--it just didn't smell the same as the 1 pound bag of loose leaf. When I tried a cup it tasted a little stale. However, I figured since I already opened it and tried some that I wouldn't be able to send it back for a smaller size. Would that still be a possibility? Thanks!
I have tried every Yerba Mate I can get my hands on, over the last 15 years of my love for Yerba Mate. My favorite has been Guayaki since I discovered it about 10 years ago. I like the flavor profile more than any other I've found. I also love what the company is doing for the land and indigenous people in South America! I now order the 5lb bag of loose smoked mate, because it is a great price break and Guayaki ships it so quickly I hardly have to wait!

With a 5-pounder in my pantry, I'll be stocked with my favorite beverage for days!
