"My husband quit coffee so we needed something to give him boost in the morning and this tea does it.He says it doesn't taste quite as good as Guayake brand , but it gives him even more energy and the price is also better."
"I like its slightly bitter taste at the end of each sip. There are a lot of health benefits in it. Obvious it is to give me energy throughout the day at work every time I have a cup or two of this Yerba Mate tea in the morning. I will purchase this organic tea again."
"Writing as a yerba mate aficionado with 20 years' experience, I can say that Eco Teas is the best I have tried - bar none. It's as good or better than Guayaki, but much easier on the wallet.
The flavor is rich, but really brisk - almost minty - and not too finely ground (a pet peeve of mine, since too much powder clogs the tea straw).
Extra points for the unsmoked and organic virtues of the product. I have experienced most of the Argentine, Brazilian, and Uruguayan brands available in the U.S., and even the best among these cannot boast these last two qualities."
"I switched to eco teas from guayaki simply because it's cheaper - it tastes JUST as good and from what I can tell from the ingredients, it is just as healthy, if not better, for me because it is unsmoked. I love it, I always buy more when I run out. To make it last longer, I always use half the amount of tea per water the directions indicate and then double-steep."
"I am a Yerba fanatic and know my Yerba Mate inside and out, so when I drink a Yerba I can be rather critical of the each and individual beverage. As many Yerba drinkers know that it possibly could be better for you to drink a non smoked Yerba and the thing here is this is the only non smoked Yerba that Vitacost stock. I was hoping they would get Guayaki San Mateo in but for some reason they can't, which is a real shame.
Eco tea loose blend is 10/10 for quality, but the taste for me is rather strong, reminds me of Nativa un smoked Yerba. Very green looking and rather bitter with no complex characteristics. I am afraid once you have had FD'S La Mejor from paraguay that is unsmoked air dried then you all would probably say I am right. I wanted to like this brand but going to stick with getting it from South America"
"My favorite tea. When I want an energizing tea ,I go to this tea. Make sure you moisten it with cold water first. It can be used in french press tea,percolators, tea ball or press and expesso machine. Very good quality tea."
"I was initially irritated by Eco Teas, assuming that an American company's yerba mate would not be that great. Then, I eased up on them when I saw the price. Now, I'm a fan of their tea as not only is it reasonly priced, but it's also really good stuff and potent.
If you like loose leaf yerba mate, then you'll definitely be cool with this product."
"I decided to try Yerba Mate because of the nutrients it provides along with the caffeine and thought it would help me cut down on the coffee I drink. I ordered Eco Teas beause it is organic and the price is low. I am pleased to say that it is easy to prepare like tea and is quite delicious. The first month, I was able to cut down to one cup of coffee and then switched to Yerba Mate for the rest of the morning. I now drink coffee only when I'm away from home and don't have access to my Yerba Mate. I drink a couple of infusions of Yerba Mate in the morning and I'm set for the day. I love it!"
"This tea is great! It gives me energy without the jitters. I drink it all day, drinking water in between. It calms the appetite also. The tea has a nice fresh taste. Keeps me alert as well. You won't be dissappointed with Yerba Mate loose tea. Just brew it in your coffe pot. Its great!"
"Gives me energy, mental focus, and curbs my appetite. I make it in my coffee maker and pour it into recycled glass tea bottles for cold bottled tea throughout the week. I sweeten it with local honey & agave nectar. Has a very refreshing taste!"
