From Guayaki

Guayaki’s Yerba Mate is made from the leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the word, (yerba mate, coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana,) yerba mate triumphs as the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition. For centuries, South America’s Aché Guayaki tribe have sipped yerba mate daily for its powerful rejuvenate effects. These rainforest people find tremendous invigoration, focus and nourishment in yerba mate and reserve it as the “drink of the gods”.

Ingredients: 100% organic sustainably harvested rainforest grown yerba mate

A review of Organic Yerba Mate Tea by Guayaki

Company: Guayaki
Tea Name: Organic Yerba Mate
Tea Type/Varietal: Yerba Mate
Region: South American rainforest
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: very light green/light brown color
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 180 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

I turn to this tea once more and I am having it as my morning drink so it can help stimulate focus and clarity while boosting my energy. I take one tea bag and add the nearly boiled water to my cup and leave it to steep for five minutes.

Tea’s color is very light green/ light brown and hints of yerba mate for aroma. I mean I can smell there is something in my cup but no words really for me to describe as I am inexperience/don’t know.

I sip and sip the tea slowly while breathing in deeply the tea’s aroma; it is a mantra of sort as I sip and inhale and swish it around in my mouth than I swallow. I do this until tea is all gone.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 10 minutes

I fixed yet another cup of this tea with longer steep for nearly 10 minutes. Tea color did not darken and the aroma is slightly stronger; it has a toasty aroma since brewed longer and hotter. And when I taste the tea this time it seems more robust mate flavoring. So I take a deep breath, then a sip of the tea while swooshing it in my mouth and then I swallow and exhale deeply. I do this until I finish drinking the tea.

What am I doing? I am having a relaxing cup of tea while meditating and incanting for peace with my surrounding environment which is most static and chaos seems to reign; while all seems quiet…but not.

I must say this is the most I have enjoyed partaking of this tea and I am thankful for the experience and the well-being feeling that comes from having drunk this tea. Thank you.

I’ve gotten into a strange sleeping pattern (which is to say, I’ve been sleeping like crap lately), so I needed a little something stronger than my usual green or black morning cuppa to get me going this morning.

This yerba mate has been my go-to drink for extra energy ever since I quit coffee. It gives me just the right amount of caffeine to wake me up and get me focused, without making me jittery. I used hot water from my housemate’s Keurig because boiling water makes it bitter, and I let it steep for half of my 8 am class, which translates to about 45 or 50 minutes.

Sounds like a disaster, right? But it wasn’t. It peaked in strength after the first ten minutes, and then the bag just kinda sat there in the water, not doing much. It was perfect. The flavor was smoky and earthy, and it helped me feel more full after my on-the-go breakfast (a Nutri-Grain bar).

Definitely going to keep a box of these teabags around for lousy Monday mornings like this one. It helped bring me back to life without being too demanding to prepare, and it tasted good, too.

I drink this tea for energy, but that’s about it. I can’t say that I particularly enjoy the flavor.

try adding some honey and almond milk to make a ‘mate latte’. it’s delicous.. also, I use lemon or mint and drink it cold on hot days… love the good energy!
