Described to help with digestion, circulation, and the immune system by using cayenne, mint and cinnamon/ My thoughts follow:

-Inhaled while sediments were billowing out of my french press and burnt my nose, sneezed almost 15 times.
-Helped allergies, but nose burnt a bit. WOW Careful smelling!
-Strong smell when brewed as well
-Crazy taste: Spicy
-Least mate influenced
-Crazy flavors, loved idea
-Great idea when sick
-Supplement with water when sick and you will be out of bed in no time
-Got tastier as I drank it
-Great morning wake up
-Even crazier with honey
-Must be very hot for it to be tasty. When sampling, I loved it when it was most hot. Not as tasty when luke temperature.

Shade Tree Mate is an exposure site and blog for Yerba Mate, and now a new Herbal Tea from Ecuador ‘Guayusa.’

My goal for the blog and site is to be a driving force in the industry where every aspect of Mate is covered. I love Mate, and it is my passion and I hope to spread the word, as well as inform and entertain.

I want to make Yerba Mate/Guayusa as nostalgic as Coffee is in consumers’ eyes.
