What folks are saying
"Your tea TREMENDOUSLY helped our Mother's 6-week recuperation from a very light, mild passing stroke (known as a T.I.A. or transient ischemic attack). This allowed more moderated energy rejuvenation in the mornings without the sudden spikes of other common morning beverages. Mom has now permanently switched from coffee to yerba matÃ©. You get to tell folk that at 88 years of grace (the Sunday before Thanksgiving) and Faith, a little old great-grandmother gave up coffee for the first time since she was 16 years old!!"
Darryl Poole, Memphis, TN
"Hi, I'm writing to you because I tried the fresh green yerba mate and I really liked it. I am originally from Argentina and know what a good mate tastes like! "
Kamila - Los Angeles, CA
"I have been looking for an organic equivalent to my daily Tazo Black Iced tea love. Not only have I found an equivalent, but a wonderful replacement!! After sampling Mate'Factor at Whole Foods, I bought the Dark Roast and the Lemon Ginger. Fabulous! I am so thankful to find something good for me that tastes soooo good! Would you ever consider making larger, individual tea bags for Iced tea? That would be the icing on the cake! Great product!! Love it!"
Rhonda Myers Pawleys Island,SC
"After years of tummy & intestinal problems it was a medical intuitive that told me I was allergic to coffee and black tea when all the docs couldn't find an answer. After trying other yerba mate products I found your dark roast. Love it! It tastes great, has the morning lift I need and its good for me. Haven't felt this good in years. Thanks for the great product. Linda Whitcomb, WA"
"Thank you for the samples! My husband and 2 teen boys liked the dark roast the best, I enjoy them all! Going to try Mascovo sugar now. I have shared your site with several co-workers, after sharing my tea with them first! Nothing like growing you business by 'taste' of mouth! Thanks again."
Rhonda - Keokuk, ia
"I can't get enough of this green tea...I can't find any thing else like it.. It has a great smooth taste, and i tell as many people as possible, and have turned many of my family and friends onto it...Thank you!
Melissa Clancy - North Babylon, NY
"All my life I have suffered from upper-respiratory infections, everything from pneumonia, bronchitis to tonsilitis to simple colds. I could never be in the same room with someone that was coughing and sneezing without catching it myself, ever. For 20 years of marriage, if my husband caught a cold, there was never any doubt that within a couple of days, I would get sick with it. As a singer-songwriter, I dreaded it, because it would naturally directly affect my vocals. I've been that way my entire life, 53 years. Then I started drinking your Hibiscus-Lime tea this year. Twice now, my husband has come home sick, coughing, blowing his nose, and even sleeping in the same bed with him, a foot away, I have yet to catch..."
Jonna Woodburn - Midlothian, Tx
"Thanks for the best yerba mate ever! "
Nicolas M - Montreal, Canada
"I have tried many different brands of yerba matte in the past decade after switching from coffee, and I have repeatedly found that Mate Factor products taste the best. Add in the organic factor and it is the best yerba matte product available. There is no more need to try other brands - keep up the high quality work and thank you for a wonderful array of yerba matte teas. "
"I recently purchased the Daily Routine Kit 1 and chose the loose Green Tea. All I can say is this is a great Bodum Press and the Green Tea has a very mild and pleasant taste not unlike the competition which I like but this is a better tasting tea. Thank you for sending me a free sample of the "Lime Tropical" tea bag which is very delicious. I also love the "Lemon Ginger" tea bags which I purchased at my local Coop. I am looking forward to trying the "Mocha Mint" and "Dark Roast" too. I can't find anything negative about these teas and you can really taste the lemon and ginger in the "Lemon Ginger" tea, which is my favorite. I am trying to quit coffee again for the 4th time so I hope I can with these..."
Donna MacCrossan - Olympia, WA
"I initially found this tea (not just this type, but in the loose tea form and also with this quality and strength) in Missoula, MT, at Butterfly Herbs, and haven't been able to find it again since, until now! I am so happy!! I swear I feel healthier immediately after drinking it- it's not just my imagination. And, I tend to bloat easily, and this tea takes care of it so well- the water in my tissues just comes right on out! An amazing product, and thank you!!!!! "
"I drink it in the evening too because it doesn't give me a buzz like coffee. It's energizing in the morning and relaxing in the evening. "
Susan Hawkinson - Duluth, MN
"I have been drinking mate for over three years on a daily basis and I like your product best of all. The flavor is delicate and smooth - and the quality of the leaves seems much higher than some other mates I've had. My favorite recipe: I put mate in my espresso maker with some powdered MACA and a bit of ground licorice - it makes a thick and aromatic brew - high octane too. Thanks for making this product available to us northerners...
"Yerba Mate has been so helpful in my transitioning out of the nasty soda pop habit, and into something much more healthy. Such great flavor and I love that I still am energized without contaminating my body with chemicals!"
"I have been drinking the loose green tea for a few years now. After every baby I had (4) when I was ready to start losing weight I would drink this tea and it helped a lot. Also whenever I got a cold or my husband has gotten sick I make him drink the tea and we feel we get better much faster. Considering I have Lupus disease I need all the help I can get with my immune system. Wonderful tasting natural remedy."
Melissa Gutman-East Setauket, NY
"This is the best yerba mate green tea! I have converted many of my co-workers on the West and East Coasts to Mate Factor yerba mate green tea and dark roast. They love it. It gives us energy all day. Thank you for great products."
Tamara - California
"i totally rate mate tea,if you suffer the dreaded LYME disease this hits all the attack pain sites fast and eases those relentlessly over tweaked nerve endings!, a total must for lymeys"
"I like it much better than coffee. I have friends that have been drinking regular mate for years. It nice to see it in tea bags. "
Shannon - Monticello, NY
"After years of drinking coffee, feeling stressed out and drained, I switched to mate. Finally I feel focused and energized, ready to handle life. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a different energy source. "
CF - Owego, NY
"I feel energized without being wired up. I was going to switch off at first, drinking coffee one morning and mate the next; but once I started drinking mate I didn't want to go back, and now the coffee just sits on the shelf! "
Charles Cahill - Union, MO
"I am writing to inform you of my complete satisfaction with your product. In the past year, I was feeling quite ill. Eventually I discovered that my stomach could not handle the acidity in coffee, black tea, green tea, vanilla or cinnamon, of all things. Dealing with caffeine withdrawal was terrible enough, but the thought of life without tea was unbearable! Thankfully I discovered yerba mate - it energizes me but doesn't irritate my stomach. Nothing eases me into a day quite like the aroma of a fresh mug of your tea. The taste is so rich and complex, never watery in comparison to other brands of mate. Thank you for your commitment to quality and your customers' well being. "
Elizabeth Ferris - New Milford, CT
"I have been drinking various brands of yerba mate for years. I drink 2 1/2 cups per day of your Mate Factor. In 3 months or so, I lost about 15 lbs(nothing else changed). with the same daily exercise, etc. I was not fat, but a bit overweight and slightly "soft". Now I'm at my fighting weight. I have not gained a single pound this winter-very unusual, and I exercise less winters. "
"Your mate gets great reviews. it's much better than the competition, which is obvious for me! Blessings."
"I have tried other brands of Mate, and nothing touches your combination of flavor and kick. It is almost as if you are selling a different species. That is how big the difference is. Makes it much easier for me to stay away from coffee. Thanks!"
Richard Sleigh, Philipsburg PA
"I've been getting your green mate for years, and I always loved visiting your booth at Expo East! (I used to work at Harnetts in Cambridge, where I was very active in helping bring in your products). I've tried other brands but yours is totally the best. Please know that I NEVER shop online (can never justify the shipping expenses on my tight budget...), but I can't live for another moment without this wonderful stuff! "
Sarah Noack - Jersey City, New Jersey
"Your Mocha Mint Yerba Mate is my favorite tea ever! It is not only delicious, it is also good for you! Many thanks!!!"
Mary Lee Richmond, VA
"Our office loves Dark Roast and Chai. I mix the two and easily gave up coffee and the jitters.
I love the way I feel now."
Danny - Marietta GA
"I was enouraged to try mate for my fibromyalgia pain. After I blindly choose yours, I am hooked. I have tried another brand, but not only did I have to use 2 teabags per cup, the taste was nothing like yours. I didn't have the pain relieving/inflammatory relieving benefits with the other brand either. I am sold. I will never again stray from Mate Factor! I love the lemon/ginger and the chai best. Great stuff!"
"Discovered your product @ the 4 day Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Some nights I had only 2 hours of sleep. Your tea kept me going without irritation or jitters. Had a great time...Thanks! "
Steve Farkash - Rio Rancho, New Mexico
"Yerba Mate tea, what awesome taste , I never thought I would be in love with tea until now. Thank you for the experience. May I please ask if you will consider a variety pack of teas. I would be so interested!! Delighted customer "
"I love your tea! I picked up some here in Lafayette and I can't believe how full bodied this tea tastes. I've tried so many my adult life and always tossing away boxes of tea because they are flat or they all taste the same or I don't trust the ingredients in the tea. But this tea I get! I can taste all of the flavors in it and it's not weak at all. Thanks for making such a great tea! I can't wait to try more varieties and I'm definitely a customer for life! :)"
Rachel - Lafayette, La
"I got turned onto Mate by some friends about six months ago. After being a regular coffee drinker for several years, I quit the coffee and switched to Mate. Mate doesn't give me the jitters like coffee. Also, I got the bonus of dropping 30 pounds in six months! Excellent stuff. "
LH - Ithaca, NY
"MateFactor has amazing customer service. Beautiful hand crafted gourds and delightfully good fresh yerba (which is different than many brands that age the yerba) Ordered from MateFactor and am so glad I did, kicked the coffee since it came in, so much better feeling already. "
Jacob Tampa, FL
"I missed my Mate Factor. I first tried Mate Factor in San Diego at the OB Farmers Market and was instantly hooked. I recently moved to Oregon where I could only find another brand which did not taste anywhere near Mate Factor. I just received 4 boxes in the mail and boy have I been happy. Thank you guys and gals again for putting together the best tasting mate. "
RD - Portland, OR
"I live for your chai yerba mate - it's the best! "
Ko-Shin - Brooklyn, NY
"Brilliant service, brilliant product, return customer. "
Mark Staufer, Los Angeles, CA
"I just wanted to let you guys know that I have received my mate and it is really excellent. I love the product and I truly appreciate that you all are a fair trade company. Also, the customer service I received was excellent and I can tell you really care about your product and your customers. Thank you so much, and I will definitely be ordering more mate in the future!"
Maddie Hines - Lynchburg, VA
"Thanks a bunch, and thanks for the mate! This is the first time I'm trying it (I'm a sucker for anything chai) as I am very sensitive to caffeine; it's working for me just fine! No stomach-aches or jitters! "
Christine Warren, Hockessin, DE
"I discovered your mate 4 years ago while working on a lengthy book project in Lancaster, NH. Everyone around me started to get sick because of the long hours and stress. I started to feel a bit weak myself. I drank the dark roast and the green tea every morning. I felt my immune system pick up. I continued with full energy on the project and never looked back! Thank you. "
Frank Biancalana, Evanston, IL.
"I've shared many sittings at the Mate Factor in Manitou Springs, thank you deeply & richly for all you offer... i'm currently in northern Florida, plan to do an herbal apprenticeship in North Carolina starting in May & lasting through October, gotta make sure I have my mate for the journey! Hope y'all are shining as you do, love & radiant blessings!
"I have lost 47 lbs. and still going thanks to this tea! "
Christine Gulec - Angel Light Reiki - RI
"Had my first cup yesterday and comming from a HUGE coffee drinker I am making the switch!! "
"I would absolutely recommend Yerba Mate to EVERYBODY. Especially as a healthy-er alternative to coffee. IF i catch a "bug" whether a cold or sinus problem it is very shortlived. I have also had a complete physical and received great results on my bloodwork. This stuff is great! Think of it as a "bug" repellent. Try it for a month and see for yourself.
Mike - Upstate NY
"Your site is elegant and easy to use. Thank you so much for a great price on the sea salt. I will definitely order more in the future. I'm also very interested in your teas. Thanks again! "
Suzanne Christie - Opelousas, LA
"It tastes great and is a great source of Vitamins A, B, C & D. It's energizing in the morning and relaxing in the evening. "
Plamen Nokolov - Ithaca, NY
"Hey this stuff is awesome!"
"Thank you soo much! Your products are great!
Amber P - Charlton, MA
"Yerba Mate is smoother and gentler than coffee. It doesn't cause the jitters, but it still energizes. Plus it gives me the b vitamins I need. I use it like a multi-vitamin. "
Charles Cahill - Union, MO
"Thanks Guys! Half the staff (including myself) are addicted to the Mate Factor Products. P.S. I'm going on a road trip and was wondering if you made t-shirts (medium) or a Mate Factor sticker to put on my van so I can spread the good word - and Mate! "
Joe - Asheville, NC
"I live in Colorado Springs and I was introduced to Yerba Mate about eight months ago. I am a college student but I refuse to drink coffee. My fiancÃ©'s friend introduced me to your product. Now i don't know what I would do without it. I carry them in my purse and in my backpack at school. Thank you so much for not only your tea, but for your lunches, your granola, and for your amazing service. I wish there were more companies out there like you.
Amanda - Colorado Springs, CO
"Thank you!! Yours is my favorite mate ever. I work in a coffeehouse and want to introduce your product - it works especially well pressed in an espresso machine! "
Heidi E - Mt Shasta, CA
"I had to perform in a play and had laryngitis- so I dug your tea out of the pantry ( I have always been an avid coffee drinker). I found the energizing factor much more soothing than coffee. Totally unexpectedly, it also revived my metabolism. I had been watching the calories and exercising but was stuck. Drinking your tea that week-I lost 5 pounds! Okay- it doesn't do everything- I still had laryngitis, but the play was still a (slightly raspy) success! Best of all, I feel and look better- and that's for life! Thanks so much for a great product! "
"Praise God for the dark roast mate! Thank you! "
M Metcalf - Cincinnati, OH
"I was first introduced to Yerba Mate by my Kung Fu Instructor. I suffered from a sleep disorder which zapped my energy levels.
I began to use three Lemon Ginger tea bags in a 24OZ cup with no sweetners at all, I like it straight and strong. My sleep issues began to improve and energy levels spiked.
I have also noticed a big improvement with my acid Reflux issues. Today I usually drink a strong cup about 30 to 45 minutes before I work out, I am convinced that Yerba Mate is far better and much helthier that thos sugar laced energy drinks often seen in the weight room and DoJos."
"A few years ago I owned a coffee shop where I was so proud to sell the best products I could find, while supporting local and fairly grown products. I've been out of the country but am home in Colorado again and am very excited to once again reap the benefits of your yerba mate..It's the best..and so fairly traded."
"Told everyone I had placed an order for the dark roast and I would share when they got here. Received my order just a couple days later (GREAT shipping!) and I think my employees were more excited than I! (They were very impressed with your sample packs and the info they offered too!) As we were sampling my supervisor came in. She only likes ICED tea, soooo, we iced some down and let her read the sample insert. Hopefully your generosity with the samples will help grow your business. I'm certainly trying to do my part of sharing the benefits of Yerba Mate and your site has more than made that easy. Thank you for having a site we can trust! If I'm going to put something in my body everyday I have to TRUST where..."
Rhonda - Keokuk, ia
"Discovered your Dark Roast Yerba Mate this weekend while in Asheville and love it. A great alternative to coffee. Thanks!"
"After years of serious mate drinking, and dozens of differant brands tried, I can say without a doubt that you have truly the finest products I have ever tasted and experienced. I use your metal bombilla with my large ceramic mug, that I start out measuring 6 tsp. of green mate,and 3 tsp. of rooibos, a pinch of your Salt Works sea salt, and a tsp. of honey. The rich, satisfying flavor of the fresh green along the salt/honey texture & contrast always start my mornings, (and even some evenings when I have to drive a ways), with such a wave of energy and mental clarity that I don't even miss my old coffee habit. That mug is good for a few more refills where I then add more loose green, dark roast, or even tear open..."
Ed - Sequim, WA
"Thank you for the best quality mate available north of the Panama Canal!! "
Jason Deptula, Summertown, TN
I just wanted to let you guys know that I have received my mate and it is really excellent. I love the product and I truly appreciate that you all are a fair trade company. Also, the customer service I received was excellent and I can tell you really care about your product and your customers. Thank you so much, and I will definitely be ordering more mate in the future!"
