It’s easy enough to stock up on tea and coffee but if you are looking into something different, maybe something even better, as your daily booster beverage consider yerba mate.
I drink both coffee and tea, but mate is with me every morning and throughout the day.
Unlike tea or coffee, I’m used to drinking mate without added sugar. It’s also more gentle as a stimulant than coffee (even if it does contain caffeine ) Its probably the healthiest beverage too. Yerba mate contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants.
Its cheap too. Around here it costs about 2.50 for half a kilo.
I drink it the traditional way but you can also make mate tea if you prefer.
Look around, you’ll probably find it in your grocery store in the imported/Latin food section.
