I wanted to share my morning coffee substitute. I don't take the credit for the drink as I discovered this very yummy tasting morning beverage at a local mom & pop cafe. You need:
* loose leaf yerba mate tea (probably bagged one will be fine too, I prefer the loose leaf one as it tastes so much better than the bagged one. Actually I didn't think I like yerba mate until I tried to loose leaf ... the taste is that different).
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1 tea spoon honey
* espresso machine
I put the loose leafs in the espresso machine.
