I ordered this product and the "Now Foods" Brazil nuts. The Now Foods not only taste much better, but they are also fresher. I wanted to try these because they are "Organic," though it does not much matter in a certain type of nut. I purchased Brazil nuts online, because the local Whole Foods Market Brazil nuts are almost always rancid! Most people have no idea apparently what a rancid Brazil nut tastes like: a strong chlorine taste and aroma will burst in your mouth once you bite into it. (In other nuts, it varies.) Bottom line: The difference between "Woodstock" and "Now Foods" Brazil nuts: 1/2 the Woodstock bag were rancid nuts, versus only one or two single nuts per bag out of the Now Foods bag.

I am sorry to give it one star. Eco Teas is a good company, but the review is about the yerba mate they are packing into this product. The"taste"of it is awful. You can immediately tell a good yerba mate just as you can immediately tell of a good red wine. It actually has little if any taste and if you have a sensitive digestive system it may not really agree with you. Again, this is just my experience with this particular yerba mate, and I have been drinking mate since a young age. My guess since I have not checked with the Company yet, is that this yerba mate is from Brasil - which tends to be of a different strand and of much lower quality than yerba mate from Argentina or from Uruguay.
