    Hello CW!
    I want to share my tiny mate.
    It is a souvenir of my country that I have since years ago.
    Made in lead, only has 4 cm.
    "Mate" its a tea, an infusion made with yerba mate and boiling water.
    Its our tradition, also in Argentina and part of Brazil people sip mate.
    With love,
    Virginia

      Have caffeine or something else more interesting? I live in St. Maarten/St. Martin & never heard of it. It's exported? I'll look for it. Is there a brand name to look for? I drink iced tea all day & would like something to break the monotony.
    10. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Yes, its like tea nutsabotas6, really good!!
      Thanks for your love!
    11. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      My fav is black tea with sugar and milk :)
    12. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Hi blunderbuss, yes has caffeine on it for this reason you can feel an stimulating effect when you sip it.
      Yerba born from a tree and the leaves are processed, crushed. You can find many types of yerba, soft, classic, more strong, mixed with digestive herbs, with flavors like lemon.
      The sale of yerba its free and yes its exported. Im safe you will like it and as you said its good break the monotony :)
    13. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Lol Jewels, its a little strong really? :)
    14. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      blunderbuss, brands are many for example "Canarias", "El Cebador", "Armiño", "Nobleza Gaucha", "Cabral" and more! :)
    15. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago

    22. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Put all those brands on my shopping list Virginia & we have a broad selection of inter'nat'l products here. Looking forward to trying it.
      And eye4, you've been around me too long! You are picking up patois but don't know how your pronunciation is? Course "I ain't got no ax-sent either" when I speak it! How about papiamento? Poco poco!
    23. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      It looks like you can make it in a French press--Bonus
    24. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago

    28. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Iced is great! Sweetened or unsweetened? Depends on where you're from right?
    29. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Virginia. Yes dear! Certainly dear! What ever you say dear! See how well trained I am! I admit that some mornings it's a different story. What kind of worries me is, I'm forgetting how to spell in English & spend a lot of time on Bing! Bon nuit.
    30. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Your not southern I take it eye? :)

    33. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Eye4, U a lot a truble! OK, I tried to find my Nat'l Graphic pic & didn't have in a file that I could find. Thanks. I thought I had it. Had to take a pic & now will poste as my profile pic.. Feb. 1981 issue. The bulge in the front of the (borrowed) bathing suit is a pair of socks. Woke up with a hangover & don't think it was either of the 2 girls in the pic.. My sister sent this to me later.
    34. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Is that you?
    35. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Yep! In '81. Not much left now & when I renew my drivers lic., they don't ask if I want to be an organ donor. (just had to Bing spelling of donor!!). Been gone too long! I have to put 2 pairs of socks in my shorts now. LMAO!!
    36. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Haha! Really great photo!
    37. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      I'm afraid I got my replies confused with another poste, but both seem to be flying along fine. I've found that this happens more & more often these days!

      Could have sworn my front door was in a diff. place! Oh, well there's beer in their fridge! LOL
    38. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      HAHA you're funny, that's okay, I joined into the confusion--I can do that, I roll
    39. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Jewels, define "roll". I may be getting "up in years", but not dead! I'm going to ck on this drink as soon as I wake tomorrow. They should be open by 10:AM!
    40. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      HAHA! Roll, you know, roll with it :)
    41. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      You got me so excited (well, half way) that I counted my Cialis tabs. Well, at least I have an accurate count now. 117 should suffice till my birth certificate expires! LOL

      BHAHAH!

      http://guayaki.com/about/2481/The-Guayaki-Mate-Bar.html HELLO VV! I buy and drink also! We have a cafe 12 minutes from my house! not too expensive either!!
    44. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Good morning!! Thanks so much pops52 for your link, its excellent!
    45. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      To eye4beauty, dont chew it or smoke, yerba its just to do a mate, you can sip it with sugar or not.
      Yerba mate isnt marihuana.
      Hope you understand, enjoy the mate :)
    46. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      To blunderbuss2, I wish you can find the yerba where you live and I wish too you can enjoy the taste of this infussion.
      I told you take care because all people when start to drink mate said "oh, this is so stronger", maybe can make bad to your stomach, for this reason I wrote you "slowly",, can understand, hope that yes. Good luck!! :)
    47. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Jewels you really are my friend!!! lol! :)
      Thanks so much amiga!!!

      Only had time to hit 1 market today but know I've seen the name yerba somewhere.
    57. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Eye4, what are we going to do with you?! I have seen it in large letters in markets (marche's or grocery stores to U probably). I WILL find it,-- I think. We have people here from everywhere & the only thing I can't find is limed masa harina for corn tortillas! LOL+
    58. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      We must be in different time zones eye4. No sleep, not much humour in the mornings! Gute nacht!
    59. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago

      Found yerba mate yesterday & tried it this morning. OK but don't think it will be permanent in my routine. Expensive here too.
    65. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      On nice blunderbuss2!! Welcome to the world of "mate" :)
      Yes, so true, isnt so cheap also here the same.
      How people love mate for this lands the owners of these companies raise the price frequently.
      With the pass of time, the body need the yerba benefits and belive me isnt so easy stop once you start with the mate routine.
    66. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      It would be better if it tasted like my 1 vice. Beer.
    67. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Wow!! This taste will be a good idea :))
    68. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Thanks so much for your love Agram.m!!
    69. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Well Virginia, the box has 16 tea bags, so we will see. I tried it 1st before my usual iced tea today. No "out of body" experiences or anything like that. Just the usual virtual reality that I usually live with. I'm not a coffee drinker & wondering if that affects it? LOL! Maybe it's just not as strong as my natural high. Luckily, I found out long ago, that I don't need drugs! Guess I like myself too much the way I am. Now, that's a scary thought!
    70. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Oh, can understand blunderbuss, agree with you.
      I dont like me the coffe, lol! Yes I drink tea sometimes.
      Im a mate drinker :) Im not use tea bags, I use the yerba into a mate with the "bombilla", and the hot water into a Thermo.
      I have many years drinking mate but I do it just in the mornings, here people can sip mate all day. As you I dont need drugs but I think this type of healthy infussions are like adictives. lol!
    71. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Sorry eye4beauty, dont did the pic! :(
      I will post it.
      Isnt a cup, its called "mate" made from a "calabaza".
      Can be too a mate made of tin, older mates were made in silver, called "mates isabelinos"with many ornaments, great pieces.
    72. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Hi eye, the pic is an ornament of the gourd or bombilla used to steep the yerba mate
    73. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Also older mates were made in porcelain too, really wonderful.
    74. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Excellent my friend!! :)
      Calabaza=gourd :)
    75. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Thank you! =)))))
    76. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Actually Virginia, I can get it loose or in bags, but my "tea-egg" is used for moringa leaves right now in my tea. I'll just have to try it some more and see (16 tea bags). $7.+. Better be good!
    77. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Oh, very expensive!!!! I will search about moringa leaves.
      Thanks blunderbuss!
    78. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Sipping at a cup right now. Better today.
    79. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago

    83. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Yes, it is :) Thanks so much zeteibao for the love!!
    84. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Virginia, I'll be honest. It didn't turn me on & I found little taste which made me wonder why it got popular?
    85. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Yes, I can understand you blunder :)
      When tourist come here sometimes they said the same!
      I think that isnt easy find the mate interesting in a short time, you need take your time, you need feel the body and mind necessity of drink it and Im safe this is in a long time.
      Since old times people used the yerba mate to feel better, to feel power, to can work hard just with this infussion, maybe for this its become popular, a "cheap food", sad but true.
    86. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Thanks so much for your love toolate!
    87. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      Thanks so much friend for the love!! Im sipping mate now, lol! :)

      Many thanks for your love and comment, I send you a mate now :)
    92. Zowie Zowie, 5 years ago
      Very nice indeed, I'm a Australian & I noticed you love the word mate not being mean far from that more trying to help but the word can be over used, the first mate was fine the other 3 seem a bit out of place. If you wanted to use the word again you could of signed off thanks for looking mate that would sound a lot better. Don't forget please I'm not being mean that's not my nature I'm just trying to help you get a better grip on the word. It would be the same if I was learning your language & got it wrong I would appreciated it if I was told so please do not be offended. Have a great & safe day.
