If ya'll haven't tried out this tea...go get some right now!! It's awesome. I've never been one to drink tea, viewing it as gay and old fashioned ha, but a friend barista at my fav coffee shop told me I should try it out. So I did, but before I researched the hell out of this "wonder tea" on google ;) All I found was praise on the health benefits of this Latin American plant and its stimulant effect (as it does contain some caffeine) without the jitters often associated w/ coffee.
Needless to say, it's been 3 days now without coffee and instead a tea bag fills my mug w/ some steamed milk :)I did have coffee withdrawals and won't abstain from it forever but I think staying off it and trying Yeba Mate for a while is good.
