Gift from a co-worker who tried the Yerba Mate and found it to have too much caffeine. I enjoy being the crazy tea lady of the office.

So far I find mate to taste very much like a green tea.

Good for her. I’m always happy when I hear about black cats getting adopted because they are the least adoptable of all colors. Same with older kitties, too.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
