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,...

Based on 5 Reviews

Great stuff

This brand is produces great quality mate. I have tried others which tend to be bitter, but the guayaki brand is top notch. If you are looking for a great neurotropic this beats tea and coffee. I recommend you look into their integration with the aboriginal community in South America. It's a great story.

Good value for a great product.

I drink this when I need to stay awake at night for work. It keeps me awake without the jitters that too much coffee give. I really like the taste as well. It's like green tea but better.

Gotta Have It

This tea is certainly an acquired taste ( read not good tasting) but it makes me feel good and I swear it clears the fog from my brain. Can't drink it without stevia (which renders it tolerable tasting) but I really do like the way I feel after drinking it and it seems to curb my hunger. I realize this is a very subjective, anecdotal review, but there it is. 5 stars for health effects (not taste).
