2 TB for 125 mL gourd, 1 tsp white sugar.

Oooh ohhh ah ah ah!

This tisane is so uttterly unique, and such a refreshing change from tea. I LOVE tea, but this coffee-laced mate, which I also love, renews my palate for tea. And it delivers sweeter, cleaner and steadier buzz than just coffee when sipped from a gourd.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
