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.
Hello, It's hard to believe it's been several years now that I have been drinking the Organic Guayaki Yerba Mate. I drink it hot or cold with nothing added. I transfer from my steeping pitcher to jelly jars that I keep just for the tea I make ahead to take along to my work. By late morning and mid afternoons I enjoy that boost to increase energy and get the job done quicker. I have acid reflux disease and this tea does not seem to bother it. Also, I have hypothyroid disease so the drink helps me not to be so tired and makes me less hungry. I have noticed too that I no long nee the vitamin suppliment Inositol either because my hair stopped falling out as much when brushing and shampooing. It works for me...you should try it you may just be hooked like me...keep the baking soda handy for scrubbing your teeth though and don't forget to swish with water after each sip of tea because your teeth will turn dark. :(

You guys should really design & sell tea canisters to hold the 1 pound, 2 pounds & 5 pounds tea bags. And the Free Gear dept should be designing more stuff like ravel mugs! I have enough tee shirts.

Very nice to work with. The product is wonderful.
It's good!!! 5LB will not last long!!
We brew our Guayaki yerba mate every morning in our French press! It's a great way to start the day! Thanks, Guayaki, for selling a delicious product that is made sustainably with sustainable packing.
I had been buying boxes of Yerba Mate tea bags at the grocery store but at the rate I was using it, it was getting very pricey. So I was very happy to find Guayaki had organic mate in loose-leaf bulk sizes. I purchased 5 lbs and it arrived very quickly and came in a resealable bag. It's good quality and very fresh. And I'm thoroughly enjoying it!
Clear out the shelves and make room for this big boy. We live on this stuff, and found ourselves making a lot of trips to the store to replenish. Get the big bag. Just do it. Every morning we mix up a big batch in a pitcher and pour it through a strainer into our Kleen Kanteens. Add a hit of apple juice, and we are good for the day. Don't leave home without it!
Great tea, quick delivery!
I live in Austria, Europe, and whenever I visit California (twice a year) I order 5 lb traditional yerba mate to take it with me to Austria.
Regrettably, it is not available in Vienna!
Mental clarity and physical rejuvenation, with a smooth, refreshingly subtle taste - these are the gifts I can always depend on when brewing up the daily pot of Guayaki Traditional Yerba Mate. Not so with any other brand of Mate... and I've tried them all!
I got this for my boyfriend. He loves it. It was his choice, actually. I specifically liked being able to talk with someone on the phone about my order. She was so nice!
