What the Simmons are drinking


Don't worry, we still love coffee but our friends recommended Yerba Mate and raved about its health benefits. I tried plain Yerba Mate before and wasn't overly impressed. However, while browsing Whole Foods last Sunday I found a box of Guayaki Mate Chocolatte that looked too good not to try. Johnny and I love it - with a little sweetener and I sometimes add milk. We've been using tea bags but I want to try a bag of loose tea because you can brew it in a coffeemaker or a French Press, both of which we own. It is healthy and contains Yerba Mate, cocoa, nutmeg, cinnamon, stevia, and clove. What's not to love?

Jenni, I'm intrigued...what IS this? Tea kinda? What does it taste like? Is it unsweetened naturally?

It is tea, I believe. It tastes like tea, I guess, and of course like the spices I mentioned. It's unsweetened naturally but the flavor we've been drinking has stevia which is a natural sweetener. Check out the links in my blog post for more info. - I think you will like yerba mate!
