Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not fresh tasting I am not sure if it is Mate factor's quality issue, or if it has been in stock too long, but the fresh grassy taste that I always liked about this mate tea was not there. It basically had little taste, reminded me of being old and stale. I am shy to buy it again, but I may try one more time, and if it is the same, that's it for me. If I buy it somewhere else and it is good, then I will contact Swanson to look into there stock, it may be out of Swanson's control, but they need to know the feedback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really nice yerba mate Great quality and taste, and it's super that it's not smoked, which deals with concerns some have raised about yerba mate. Also, the packaging is way, way better than some of the competitors' -- I take a bag of this when I'm traveling (for months at a time) because I don't want to be without, and the bag survives the journey!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organic and Good This yerba mate tastes great and it is organic, so I am glad to know there are no pestisides being mixed with my antoxidants and caffeine. Nice energy buzz but without jitters!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yerba Mate Was somewhat disappointed when brewing. So finely chopped that it is hard to pass water through. My fine mesh steeper allows sediment to pass through.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mate Factor This particular yerba is unique in that its not dried & aged like so many others. I find this makes the flavor more mild than other yerbas. It tastes great when prepared with a French press, but I find the flavor doesn't last as long when drinking it the traditional way with a gourd & bombilla. This would be a great place to start for those interested in trying yerba mate since its mild. I would also recommend this to seasoned yerba drinkers as something different to try. Just don't expect the flavor to last most of the day.
