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'm not sure if my palette is just unrefined or if it's the fact that I drink my mate 'latte' style with milk and sugar, but I couldn't tell much difference between this blend and the standard Guayaki. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fine mate, just couldn't taste much difference.

I have been drinking Guayaki yerba mate for years
And really looking forward to finally trying
Ache's Pride. I found it practically flavorless and
Bland and maybe stale. Very disappointed. Your other mates are
So far its my favorite yerba mate. So smooth and foresty.
This blend of Guayaki is so refreshing in taste and in purpose. Smooth, robust, and foresty with the pleasure of knowing this is one of the greenest products someone can consume.
Probably la creme de la creme and my personal favorite. A bit pricy, but I try to get some during special promotions. They did not ship it with the original order, however I called and customer service was happy to ship it for real. I have never had a problem with customer service or the Guayaki Yerba Mate team. Thank you so much!
This is a beautiful matte! The description is accurate - a light, fragrant tea. I was glad to have the opportunity to try it, and hope to get more before this limited supply runs out. Yay 2010 harvest!
