Oregon Yerba Mate

“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink yerba mate.” 


This is what my 22 year old daughter who is an aspiring actress in LA recently said to me when she asked me to mail her some more of the magic green stuff.  I remembered not having mate in my life and I could totally relate to what she was saying as I’m sure every mate drinker can.


Nowadays, coffee, that black acidic brew, feels like the old, unconscious way to get energy, kind of like what oil and BP are to the earth.  Waking up with mate is like renewable, green energy…it just feels right.  It starts with a sweet clarity of mind and then this “can do” attitude and enthusiasm for life kick in.


There’s no more acid, no more jitters, just pure goodness for mind, body and spirit. My daughter thinks mate would solve all the world’s problems and I think she might just be on to something.
