Learn about Yerba Mate (“Mate” is pronounced like “Latte”!), a nutrient-dense, caffeine-rich tea treasured in South America. Our tea expert Charles Russman will teach you how to brew it, using a traditional drinking gourd & bombilla (a metal, filtered drinking straw) as used in South America for hundreds of years.

The cost of this event includes a traditionally crafted, cured, and seasoned gourd & bombilla to use in class and to take home with you. Following South American tradition, we’ll be engaging in an enlightening group discussion after tea has been made!
