Guayaki – The Company
The business model of Guayaki is environmentally sustainable and they are aiming to create 1000 living wage jobs and conserving 200,000 acres of rain forest. Guayaki yerba mate is grown organically by small farmers and it is harvested in small batches. The method of growing makes it a high quality product but also increases its price. It is most popular among North American consumers.
Taste and Aroma
Guayaki yerba mate has a mild and soft taste, with smooth and earthy aromas. The taste also has some rich chalky mineral notes with a hint of citrus. It has milder taste and lower acidity compared to most of the more traditional brands. If you are looking for traditional, strong tasting, high-energy mate, this is not the ideal choice.
This yerba mate has been designed to suite North American consumers. I find the taste very pleasant, especially if I’m looking for something with a bit milder flavor or when making iced mate. If you want to get more taste and energy out of it, you can use water as hot as 180ºF / 82ºC.
Guayaki Yerba Mate – A High Quality Product
Guayaki yerba mate is a bit more expensive compared to many other brands. However, it is organic, sustainably produced and has very high quality standards. I think these qualities make it worth its price. Guayaki yerba mate has a mild taste which is suitable for most North Americans and it is also a good choice for first time mate drinkers.
