Yerba Mate (Mate Latte)

May 01, 2006


I hereby declare that I am not allowed to touch beverages containing yerba mate. I really got into tea when I found out that caffeine triggers my headaches. It became so much easier for me to control my caffeine intake. But at this point, I’m really sensitive to stimulants, and while I can enjoy an occasional cup of coffee or a pot of black tea, mate makes me really jittery and unfocused, and basically useless to the world.

(And perhaps you can use some of the key words in the glossary as you go.) I’m very happy to make Gongfu Girl a group effort, and I don’t want to leave out whole categories of content just because I shouldn’t drink them.

On that note, the Republic of Tea “Mate Latte” was an interesting tangle of cocoa, nuts, and flowers, with a strange cedar note that research has told me is rooibos. I should have known! The aroma is bold, but the taste had to be brought up to expectations with a touch of sweetener. Again, the mate was extremely stimulating, and I’m filing this under “caffeinated.” True to the “latte” in the name, it was creamy even without the addition of milk, and I saw no need for it.

I’d love to enjoy it again, but maybe only when I’m doing a more high-energy activity. I invite you try it and tell me what you think: girl (at) gongfugirl.com
