exceptional body and flavor
 June 18, 2013
"Prepared in a French press, this is one of my favorite hot beverages, with a smoother, richer flavor than most mate beverages, and a modest caffeine energy-boost."

Healthy alternative to Coffee, but what is it!?
 February 11, 2013
"Googled these unknown Ingredients and you should too: Organic original fresh green yerba mate, What is that exactly? Organic roasted yerba mate, Again not sure what this is! The following are simple enough, Organic roasted barley, organic roasted carob and organic roasted chicory.
Honestly not sure it's a good idea to give up something like Coffee where you actually know what it is, for an alternative to Coffee that is a blend of? Only Yerba Mate knows!
Maybe it tastes okay, but what is it anyway!?"
