Hello everyone! My name is Tony Starcevic, my mate journey started in August of 2016 after I watched a YouTube video by Tim Ferriss. Tim was describing his experience with mate and how it really helped with his writing. As an avid tea drinker, I was amazed I had never heard of mate before.

After doing some research, I found Dave Mate and began actively participating in circles and online discussions on the Facebook page and eventually Telegram group. A year later, I joined the Circle of Drink social media team and began doing reviews and managing social media for COD!

Yerba mate has changed my daily life. This wonderful holy herb as it’s known has slowed down my day and allowed me to concentrate with laser like precision. From the health benefits to the timelessness of preparing a gourd, mate is become more than just a hobby for me. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, you can find me in the Facebook or Telegram group! Salud (:
