"Single or double espresso, ristretto or a lungo or should I go for a latte or cappuccino together with my chocolate croissant this afternoon?"
That was the thought that was going through my mind when looking for a seat while sitting down at the terrace. Next however, my attention was attracted by the couple sitting next to me who were sipping a drink from those fancy metal straws and leather and colourful cups.
I asked them what they were drinking, when the waiter intervened and proudly said that it was his new South American tea, Yerba Maté, which would boost my health according to him.
As I am always willing to try new things I ordered one right away and picked the orange flavour as it is my favourite pick in case of cocktails, while the maté contains no sugars or calories and therefore fits perfectly in my diet!
And it tasted Great!!
Of course, I had to google the truth about the health benefits and was blown away with the research results:
Yerba mate offers the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage!
Well, I became a fan of yerba maté and the café that introduced me to it, it definitely is my new “coffee place” in town!
