About This Brand

Rainforest-grown, certified organic and fairly traded yerba mate. In 1996, Guayaki was seeded in California's central coast by two university buddies. Alex Pryor from Buenos Aires, and David Karr from Northern California. As good friends and passionate yerba mate drinkers, David and Alex set out to share the yerba mate plant with the world, recognizing that people were in need of a nourishing source of energy and a healthy dose of optimism. As good fortune would have it, co-founders Alex and David were swiftly joined by three other pioneering partners to round out the original founding seed group: don Miguel aka the “The Journeyman”, Steven Karr aka “Shape-Shifter” and Christopher Mann aka “The Chairman of the Gourd”. These five ambitious friends aka the “semillas” (seeds) channeled their activist mentality into the creation of a new restorative business model, calling consumers to action by voting with their dollars.Growing up, we always heard “money does not grow on trees.” Well,...

Plain GOOD

Can't live without it!

- Kathleen

Great tasting tea

I've been drinking this tea for years and always buy in bulk to save money. Thrive Market offers the best price and I always keep a bag on hand so I don't run out.

Better than coffee!

First time trying Yerba mate and love it, good clean energy without the caffeine crash.

- Dustin

Coffee Boost, but Better!

I am definitely a coffee drinker and I've tried some mate before, but this is great stuff. It gives me the energy boost I need in the morning but without the jitters, the crash, or the digestive side effects. I still love the taste of coffee, but I've been drinking this regularly for about a month now and I love it.

My coffee fix that isn't coffee

I've been drinking yerba mate since a trip I took to Guatemala a few years back. But I've never quite found one that tastes like the one I had there. This is very close, though, a great mate that has the flavors and texture that makes this such a strong alternative to coffee. It's all natural and gives me the same feeling as when I was drinking coffee, but without those ill effects that sometimes coffee can bring.

Better than Coffee

I have been drinking Yerba Mate instead of coffee for quite a while. It is the perfect coffee replacement. It tastes robust and wakes me up in the morning without the nasty coffee crash or all that caffeine.
This is the most affordable Yerba Mate I have found anywhere. I used to buy it at our local Wegmans, but I find it is much cheaper here on Thrive. I don't have to feel guilty about what I am spending on it and I can reap the benefits of drinking such a tasty coffee replacement.

Coffee replacement

I wake up with yerba mate every morning. If you're looking for an alternative to coffee I highly recommend.
