I drink this Monday – Friday at work everyday from 11am – 3pm afternoons. It has a nice caffeine pick me up. Yerba Mate is so cheap – 1KG (2.2 pounds) for about $6. It will last me about 2 years! Yerba is good with honey, sugar, or mixing other teas to it. I don’t do the gourd / silver straw ritual, instead steep with a tea ball. If I was on a desert island that had hot water, this would be added to my suitcase.
10/11/12 – Taking a break from tea today, went to the bottom office drawer for my first love – Rosamonte Mate. Wow, haven’t had it in awhile, strong, and good!
5/15/2013 – I finished the bag awhile ago. Mission accomplished. Nice strong taste, interested in the Rosamonte Especial now.
