Yerba Mate

Not my first time trying Mate (pronounced mah-tay), but I guess I forgot how bitter it can be.  It's like a really herby tea, but strong strong strong.  It's a South America thing, they are crazy for it in Paraguay and Uruguay and Argentina.
Me, I'm crazy for coffee.  But, when in Rome.

Oh, also you have to drink out of the permanent straw on the side of the gourd.  Which means you also have to just get over your silly germ fears.  It's all about sharing.

"I can't believe I just shared a straw."
