You guys know I’m a coffee person.
I wake up two hours early every morning just so I can enjoy some peace… quiet… and java.
When I don’t have coffee in the morning, I get
irritated cranky apocalyptic.
Sometimes I snack on coffee grounds.*
*No I don’t.
I love my coffee. I cherish it. I admire well-brewed cups.
But there’s also a special place in my heart for tea. Admittedly, I didn’t know a lot about yerba mate before I went to their Whole Foods event during spring break, but it didn’t take long for me to become intrigued. Yerba mate has as much caffeine as coffee, which is its biggest selling point for me. It’s also fruity and earthy, and sweet enough to satisfy both Preston (who loves sweet tea) and me (I prefer my tea unsweet).
