Pleased with purchase!!

By: Laura of Auburn, Michigan

I am new to Yerba, but really wanted to try it, but then saw all the different types and blends, and became quite unsure as to where to start. I ended up reading nearly all of the reviews on this site for guidance, only to discover that shipping was quite pricey compared to the price of the product (shipping for me would have been nearly $4 more than a $12 bag of Yerba) so I decided to "go BIG, or go home!" and opted for the free shipping w/a $50 purchase. I'm glad I did, because I am really enjoying the Yerba that I purchased! This Roasted Mate is just one of the 4 types I ordered. It brews a nice dark, rich, cup of tea which I decided to try as a "Yerba Chai Latte" - I added Allspice, sweetened condensed milk, and a little evaporated milk (measurements based on my taste-buds) and OMG, it is my new favorite drink!! :) I had to force myself to NOT make another one this morning, so that I could try out another type of Yerba that I purchased. As I type, I am drinking my first cup of Gaucho Fuerto w/ a dash of cream. It too will make a very nice spiced tea. The first type I tried when my order arrived was the San Mateo, a wonderful GREEN blend - I want to try it as a cold beverage with fruit or citrus the next time I make it, as I think that will be quite nice! All in all, if you are new to Yerba, like I am, a good summary would be to think of Yerba as very close to tea (If I didn't know any better, I would have thought it was tea!) and as tea, each variety is slightly different. I've tried 3 of the 4 I purchased and am pleased so far, so I think your best bet would be to just pick one & go for it! I really don't think you can go wrong w/ any of them! :) *Also, I noticed some online reviews complaining about sticks/twigs in the mix, but it's my understanding that these add to the flavor, as well as act as a filter for those drinking in the traditional way with a bombilla. Yerba is blended with differing amounts of stem (sticks) etc. based on country of origin and method of consumption (cold, hot, in mate, or in coffee machine...)

The taste of this is maybe somewhere in between coffee and mate, but better than either. I can't understand reviewers that say, it takes getting used to: if you know mate, and you know coffee, this the obvious superlative drink. I loved it after the first sip and will keep ordering it.

Great Stuff!!

By: Colleen of Mesa, AZ

Looks like coffee and makes a great substitute for it. I really like this. I like all Yorba Mate tea, but this is my favorite for first thing in the morning. I make at least 2 cups of it & use the same tea bag for both. Use loose tea in paper bag with little less than 2t of tea in the bag.

Roasted Mate

By: Gretchen M GAMBLE of Oceanside Ca

Very good! I almost like it as much as the Vanilla Nut Mate that Guayaki used to make. I prefer that one but this one comes close.

Riveting Roasted Mate

By: Alison Windler of Austin/TX

This mate has a full robust flavor and can pack an amazing zing of energy before you know it. It is dark enough to be mistaken for coffee (well the way I make it) when in a press. I had stopped drinking coffee after a while of sampling other products from Guayaki..and now there is no other for me. This mate is perfect with a little Coconut Milk Creamer(So Delicious)and Truvia.

Loose leaves are bitter

By: Christine of Lakeland, MN

I ordered both tea bags and loose leaves of the roasted matte. I made a batch of cold press with the loose leaves because when I brewed it, it tasted bitter, but the cold press was no better. The bags are fine.

Best Mate of them All

By: R. Givens of kinsgburg

I love the Roasted Mate. It is the best of all the Mate choices. Rich, smooth, hearty, and good. I want a 5 lb bag of it but can't seem to find one on the website. I hope I don't have to go to a competitor to find it. I would like to keep my business with Guayaki if they would offer a 5 lb bag of Roasted Mate.

Didn't know what to expect

By: Paul of Boston, MA

I've been trying out a number of Guayaki's varieties, so I thought I'd give this one a try. So far I find it the least like the other non-flavored Mates, and that's not necessarily bad. I should note, I'm not a coffee drinker so I can't make a clear comparison, but the smell and taste (and effect) are very coffee-like to me, but the taste is more pleasant to me than coffee. I found that both in flavor and caffeine effect this is stronger than the other Mates, so I have been using almost half the amount of mate in the water.
