Favorite Loose leafe Yerba Mate
 July 14, 2014
"Ive tried 4 different brands and Guayaki is the least bitter and very effective for a good wakeme up. i don't drink coffee, but this is made in my 4 cup coffee pot every morning. i even cycle water thru it 3-4 times when splitting with others. more diluted, but still tastes good."

I love this tea
 November 28, 2013
"I have been buying the bottled version for a while, and finally decided to just buy the loose tea and brew it. Much cheaper to brew it myself. Yerba Mate gives a nice calm energy, not jittery like coffee. Drinking this makes me feel good."

"I put a teaspoon of Yerba Mate (in a tea screen) with about a quarter spoon of honey in a cup of hot water. It has an unusual but pleasing taste and is high in antioxidant. It also contains caffeine which is good or bad depending on how much of it you drink."

"Having tried MANY varieties of mate through the years, I keep coming back to Guayaki. Why I even try others is because I'm a spend-thrift and keep hoping I'll find a brand that tastes as good for less $ - but I never have. I just really enjoy the very mild smokiness that Guayaki possesses. And I use my Keurig reusable mesh cup to brew it through!"
