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...

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!

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.

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.

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!
