Yerba Mat
    #4114414 - 04/30/05 01:25 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I just tried  Yerba Mat?  for the first time and I've got to say, WOW!

I drank it plain, after steeping a tablespoon of organic dried leaves in hot/warm water for 3 minutes in a coffee filter; but next time I think I will try it with a bombilla and just leave it loose in the cup.

The only way I could describe it would be as a caffeinated green tea with a *hint* of that bitterness you get with caffeine.  Really nice, smooth and with a bit of milk and honey, I can see this as a great way to relax mid-day or afternoon with friends instead of a beer (I know, I know.... BLASPHEMER IN TEH PUB :beer:)

Have any shroomerites ever tried Mat

I've been drinking Yerba for @ 2 years solid now man, tons of cool antioxi-dance(hehe :wink: ) and stuff. I dunno where you're procurring your's but i'm pretty sure you're a fellow cannuck so may i recommend the *tea haus in London Ontario? Really high calibre and only $3 for a 100 gram bag with next day delivery :yesnod:

Yea, man. Mate is good stuff. I use it now and then when I am tired of green, chai or any of my other teas.

Thanks for the link dude; looks good.
I am looking for an organic source; do you know if they are certified organic?
I'll also probably be buying a gourd and bombilla at some point...

is there any specific kind of bombilla you would recommend?  The ones I have seen seem to be like these

My mom sent me some Guayaki in bags. Haven't tried it yet, but my neighborhood coffeeshop owner put me on to www.mymateworld.com and I really wanna try it w/the gourd and straw.
