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.

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.

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.

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 one of the other flavors of teabags, a pinch more Salt Works, & honey to taste. What's left makes great compost. You have made available the best mate I know of.

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.

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!

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...
