“I love our Sweet Orange Mate. It gives me a bit of clarity in this murky world”.

UPDATE Aug 2020 – while I still love yerba mate, my new favorite tea is Lapsang Souchong.  I drink this smoky black tea with honey and steamed oat milk every morning.  after visiting Ireland on a golf trip in Sep. 2019, I decided to give coffee a break.  I wanted something with a strong-ish flavor to start my day and found it in Lapsang.  I steep loose leaf tea in a 2 cup teapot for a full 6 minutes, add a good squeeze of honey and top it with foamy oat milk from Oatly.  I use a Nespresso milk steamer that works incredibly well.  I bought it in 2017 and found the prices have gone way up. I paid $65 in Jan 2017 and now see them at $120!  Yikes.  my favorite part of My Morning Beverage is after adding a heaping scoop of tea to my warm teapot.  I give it a swirl before adding boiling water, and the aroma takes me back to the coal-burning UK countryside.  Magic!
