I have mentioned several times here on the blog and on social media that I am taking coursework with the International Tea Education Institute. One of our first homework assignments was to write a profile of yerba mate. Given that the 2016 Olympic Games are being hosted in Brazil, I thought I'd share the profile with you now.
Have you ever drunk yerba mate? I own a bombilla and have tried the tisane at a friend's house though I cannot recall the flavor or smell of the beverage.
