Amazing TEA and Excellent Service!!!
You are a staple in our household!
Guayaki Yerba Mate has been my morning wake-up drink for years. I wouldn't dream of changing---
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!
