Another awesome Oregon Yerba Mate Blend. Not only is this for the veteran drinkers of Mate because it gives a great stout glass of Mate, it is also smooth for rookies.

For all of the times you accidently made a weak brew, or god forbid you had to drink Mate from TeaBags, this blend is what Mate is all about.

A good characteristic for Mate is:
1. Can’t see through it
2. Has great sediment on the bottom
3. Gives some bubbles on top when brewed stoutly
4. Smooth, but a bit bitter taste
5. Is called 5X Blend

Shade Tree Mate is an exposure site and blog for Yerba Mate, and now a new Herbal Tea from Ecuador ‘Guayusa.’

My goal for the blog and site is to be a driving force in the industry where every aspect of Mate is covered. I love Mate, and it is my passion and I hope to spread the word, as well as inform and entertain.

I want to make Yerba Mate/Guayusa as nostalgic as Coffee is in consumers’ eyes.
