Yerba Mate: My Miracle Beverage

I have a major life announcement.  I found a miracle drink, and it's called Yerba Mate. Miracle is right: it has "the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea and the euphoria of chocolate all in one beverage," according to the Guayaki Yerba Mate website.  Yes that's right, after being absolutely addicted to coffee for the last 8 years, I found a healthier substitute that still provides me with 85 mg of caffeine!  I've been drinking it in the late morning and late afternoon every day this week, when I would normally turn to the office Keurig machine, and it has worked wonders on my mood, energy level and productivity.  The benefits of this beverage may seem pretty unbelievable, but it's actually been produced and consumed in South American countries from the leaves of the rainforest mate tree since the mid-17th century.  The taste?  Very similar to a black tea.  Where can you buy this?  I found it at the Giant Eagle Market District in Solon after work on accident, but it is a little difficult to find in regular groceries stores.  Try your local Giant Eagle, or order it online on Amazon.  I swear your life will be forever changed!
