Adagio Has Mate!
Just a head’s up, Adagio now has mate, and is giving 4 samples with every $19 through the end of the month. I don’t know if you have to click through their Facebook page to get the deal, or if it’s always there, though.
I just placed a $14 order this week, which was still on my lap when I saw this… c’est la vie.
is the mate pretty straight or is it the mixed/flavored types? Does anyone know of a good/easy mate importer? I really don’t like the mixed stuff but my friend from Argentina always has delicious straight mates she brings back, and I have no idea how to get those in the states!
If you go to their website it states that they have 6 flavors:
yerba mate (untoasted)
citrus mate (green)
mocha nut mate (toasted)
spiced mate (toasted)
mango mate (green)
I haven’t ordered anything from them yet and haven’t even looked at their mate selection, but as soon as you say importer I think Upton Tea Imports.
gauchogourmet.com sells most of the major brands from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, etc. My favorites from Argentina are Cruz de Malta and Rosamonte!
Has anyone placed an order yet? I placed an order yesterday totaling $19, but the samples didn’t show up in my cart.
What brand are you interested in? Some health food stores carry them. I found Guayaki at my local Green Acres. You can also order online.
In order to receive the mate samples, you need to click on the facebook, twitter, or email link. Otherwise the website does not know to add it to your order.
yea so i guess they’re all flavored except their basic? I mean, i guess i’m not looking for different flavors so much as the different brands they have in argentina. it seems like all you can find here is guayaki…
Yes, I know this is a very old post, but I just started a new job and one of my co-workers drinks mate from a traditional Calabash gourd. What is the preparation like for mate? Where can I get a decent gourd and drinking straw if I want to try it out?
I don’t know much about the preparation, as it turns out I didn’t much care for mate, but I’d like to suggest arborteas.com and teahaus.com as places to buy the gourd and straw. I love both companies, and it’s only partially because they are from my city. :)
Thanks so much! I really expected this to be a dead thread :)
Why didn’t you like it?
I did find this store. My wife is always buying tons of stuff from this place. All handcrafted personal sellers. A lot of choices on gourds, at least with this seller. I will check out those sites, as well. Thanks!
