Good day, tea fans. It's Yerba Mate Month - and that's no joke. Yes, it's true that yerba mate is not, in the strictest sense of the word, a tea. But we're not about to split hairs here at TGS.
As luck would have it, a few articles appeared in the papers in the last few days - just in time for Yerba Mate Month. Here's one from AZ Central.com that's kind of a Yerba Mate 101, with a little extra attention paid to caffeine content and such stuff. The Orange County Register ran an article about a natural products show held in Anaheim last week. Needless to say yerba mate vendors were on hand.
Of course, Tea Guy has had a few things to say about yerba mate. Here's a short piece that appeared in these very same pages a while back and here's Confessions of a Reluctant Yerba Mate Drinker, an article I wrote for Epicurean Online.
