I have never heard of this before! I absolutely love cultured brews. The history and tradition just creates an amazing experience for me. I really wish I had a gourd; because this would be really good. I made due with my modern brewing vessels. The leaf is incredibly unique. It literally looks right off the bush. I can see the veins in the thin jade leaves. They carry a strong grass aroma. I brewed these up and drank heartedly. The flavor is deep and herbaceous. The liquor is a pale citrine. This brew had undertones of soft wood and grain with a yerba mate sweetness. I love this stuff! I am so happy I was able to try it!
