Customer Ratings & Reviews

Organic Yerba Mate Loose Tea - Dark Roast is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mate ever! I have tried a number of brands and varieties of yerba mate. This is by far my favorite. Before ordering I researched several mate websites and always found excellent reviews for this product. The dark roast gives it a hint of a chocolaty flavor, not at all "grassy". My only issue is with the beliefs of the company that produces it. If there were another option, I would much prefer not to buy from Mate Factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great morning brew! I love this tea in the morning. I brew it, add a little honey and almond or coconut milk and enjoy it! It's a bold flavor, nice replacement for coffee and also helps keep things 'regular'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ice Cold Goodness This is a roasted mate, with roasted barley, gives it a black quality like coffee. If you like Roastaroma Tea, it's similar in roasted flavor. I make it and ice it with agave and a little milk, it's amazing. Feels like it has a touch more caffeine then most Yerba Mate. Delicious hot as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Tea I've been drinking Yerba Mate as a coffee substitute for years, and this is my favorite one - it's not smoked, and it tastes great! I now prefer it to coffee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coffee alternative! I love this tea for so many reasons; good flavor, aids digestion, great caffeine boost and healthy antioxidants. I had to give up coffee due to acid reflux and was thrilled when I found a tea that was strong enough to help me overcome my coffee cravings. Now coffee doesn't even tempt me, this tea is so good. My local health food store charges over $10 for one bag of this so I was thrilled at the price value I get on this site. Can't say enough good things about it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A very robust tea If you're searching for a strong tea, this one is the product for you. I found the tea flavor to be too strong using the normal amount of tea leaves. Less is more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust and Superb flavor I have been a Yerba Mate drinker for a few years now, usually drinking the unsmoked variety. With my recent Swanson order, I came upon this product, and decided to give it a try. WOW. What a great tasting alternative to what I usually make. I have been drinking this tea now for a few weeks and added it to my favorites list. I make it using my YiXing tea pot, letting it steep for about 3-4 minutes. It can be steeped 2 times for that second cup to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I no longer drink regular coffee, and rarely drink decaff, so I was hunting for a satisfying alternative since I loved my coffee. I tried many and found Teeccino, which Swanson's has at a very good price, but found Teeccino to be a little thin for my taste. So, I was looking to add something to the Teeccino to give it more body. I am so glad I found Yerba Mate Dark Roast Organic Loose Tea. I use a Mr. Coffee coffee maker, and I add one flat tablespoon of Yerba Mate with one heaping tablespoon of Teeccino. Add a little sugar and cream to the taste, and you have a great tasting cup. The Yerab Mate gives a nice little lift without the crash, and does the job to add body to the Teeccino ( Mocha and Chocolate mint and French Roast are my favorites ) The Yerba Mate is organic, which I love, and is loaded with antioxidents, according to the label. I use more Teeccino in the mix than Yerba Mate, so the flavor of the Teeccino comes through. If you use too much Yerba Mate, it will create a geen tea taste which I am not after in this mix. Great Product!!
