As an avid Yerba Mate drinker, I have grown my pallet to enjoy bitter things. This does not only mean my taste buds, my nose as well. Before I review this I will say I hated the initial smell, before and after brewing. On that note, a VERY TASTY blend. The Mate wasn’t very potent but it was there and it gave me a good, almost jittery energy. I know “jittery” is a four letter word in the world of Mate, but it was good jittery, ha! Great tasting blend although a suspect smelling one for a very sensitive nose

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.
