Burning the Midnight Mate Posted on 18 Aug 10:11 , 0 comments

Yerba mate makes me happy. I love the way yerba mate smells and tastes. I love the way it feels.

Sometimes, when I'm getting into bed at night, I get excited because I know that I will soon be drinking yerba mate when I wake. As this wave of anticipation hits me, I actually smell yerba mate in my imagination, the way I sometimes smell the pine trees in a mountain range I climbed long ago, or the way I smell a lost beloved in a stranger's fragrant perfume. 

Speaking of nostalgia, I sometimes wish I were back in college. Not only because then I could shamelessly spend my afternoons reading books under a sugar maple. If I were back in college, and I needed to study for a test or write a paper, I could pack myself a gourd, and I wouldn't have to wait til morning.

And so, in honor of college kids everywhere, we are offering a sale on yerba mate starter kits here. Ends on Monday night, so grab one while you can!
