Best possible mate out there!
 January 8, 2014
"I've tried every single mate brand out there, this is THE best! Freshest (most nutrients therefore), tastiest, and best packaging! This mate comes vacuum sealed and has a good bag which allows you to seal it properly for maintaining freshness. This is really the best out there and i really HIGHLY recommend buying it. I NEVER MAKE REVIEWS I SPECIALLY WANTED TO MAKE A REVIEW ON THIS TO TELL OTHERS HOW GOOD IT IS. Thanks :D"

"I love mate. It reminds me of grass or something so earthy and basic. I've only had a few kinds of mate, but this is a good one. I add a little sweetener and it tastes like sweet grass!"

Best Tasting Y Mate
 January 20, 2013
"As they say, you get what you paid for and though this brand is more pricer than others, the taste makes up for it. Yerba mate teas don't usually taste that great to me - sometimes I add honey or molasses and almond milk and cinnamon to make it more appetizing. But this brand, I can drink straight."

"This is the freshest, best tasting maté I have found in the U.S. Not only does it taste great but it is better for you because it is fresher. I will stick with Maté Factor. The chai is REALLY good too!"
