The Yerb

Until recently I’ve never been a person who likes to consume any sort of hot beverage. Honestly I’ve never understood why a person would want to actually drink a pipping hot liquid that frankly tastes like ass. And tea, undeservedly fell into the same category that coffee, of any sort so richly deserves.

But it’s been a good three years since I started drinking a South American wild tea called Yerba-Mate…

“Yerba Mate (pronounced “Mah-Tay”) is truly a remarkable herbal beverage which ranks exceptionally high in nutritional content among brewed or steeped drink products. For pennies a serving, a cup of yerba mate provides more value and is more cost effective than many manufactured energy drinks or meal replacement options on the market.”

All the “propaganda” aside, this truly is a tea worthy of attention. Similar to Green Tea’s taste, in a manner reminiscent to that of tree bark. I only say that because that was the very first thing that popped into my head that gives it’s “natural” flavor any sort of justice. But most interesting are it’s mental effects. Clarity is what instantly springs to mind. And no “jitters” that often accompany caffeine intake.

It’s all good. Much better than this post is. I feel the damned bottom of the barrel nearing. And, honestly it stings a little…
