That so many people have yet to discover yerba mate. In Norfolk, Fair Grounds is the only place I know that serves it. Fortunately, it’s not so hard to get the yerba mate leaves. I’ve been brewing my own now since last fall. This weekend I bought a French press. It really makes a great difference… so much better than tea bags.
Mate, like hookah, is just one pleasure I can’t do without.

For a few months a couple years ago I was really into investigating exotic teas (and ordered a bunch of loose-leaf from rishi-tea.com). Anyway, though it’s not a tea exactly, YERBA MATE kept coming up in websites, books and in conversations with people.
And yet, to this day, I have yet to try it. Thanks for the suggestion… I’ll see if I can get my hands on some.
I get my mate from my local health food store. You should be able to find some there.
