Traditional Yerba Mate
Guayakí (gwy-uh-kee) Yerba mate (yer-bah mah-tay) is made from the leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree (ilex paraguariensis).
Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world, (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 Guayakí tribe have sipped yerba mate daily for its powerful rejuvenative effects. These rainforest people find tremendous invigoration, focus and nourishment in yerba mate and revere it as the "drink of the gods".

THIS TEA IS HEAVEN-SENT!
THIS TEA IS HEAVEN-SENT!
I discovered Yerba Mate about ten years ago and drink it without fail every single morning. Personally, I don't know what I'd do without it!While coffee can ruin your system and make one nervous, Yerba Mate delivers a clarity, awakeness and balanced aliveness. Supposedly, it contains caffeine, but a nutritionist once told me that the compounds in Yerba Mate are "a cousin" of caffeine, but the FDA requires it to be called caffeine. If that's true, it would explain why it stimulates but IS NEVER HARSH on the nervous system or adrenals like coffee is. I think it's the PERFECT COFFEE SUBSTITUTE. I confess I drink more than a single bag - up to four bags a day sometimes. It is great for waking up, before meditation, before working out and super great for writing, reading and studying. While, Yerba Mate is fine by itself, I highly suggest trying a little chocolate flavored (or your favorite flavor) Almond Breeze, Soy Milk or Rice dream for flavoring and sweetness, or adding a little stevia. For us, Guayaki Yerba Mate tea is the most incredible tea on the planet!
I did some research before buying because I am sensitive to caffeine. The websites said the caffeine in yerba mate tea would not react like regular black teas. Well it did and I had difficulty sleeping.

Rating quite well, however the taste of this tea was ok for me. Not as tasty as yogi tea and also not giving the same outcome as triple leaf tea-super slimming
Good for portability

I prefer to purchase loose leaf teas and use one of the tea straws I've purchased here. Yerba Mate is a healthy alternative to coffee and has some good nutrition. My functional medicine doc suggested this brand to drink daily. Since I've given up dairy coffee isn't as appealing anyway.

Love this stuff, gives you the kick of coffee and mind clearing effect of guarana without side effects such as nausea due to stomach issues or anxiety / jitters on coffee overload. I use tow bags in the afternoon to power though long meetings. Does not impact ability to sleep either which too much coffee can do.
