Chimarrão - Liquid Crack

I joke a lot about drinking "Erva Mate" with my coworkers, that it is really liquid crack. The truth be told, yes, it is full of caffeine, but it is loaded with other antioxidants that not even green tea has. Also university studies have shown that it raises HDL cholesterol levels and lowers LDL cholesterol levels as well as triglycerides and glucose. This is just one of the many customs I brought home from me from the Brazilian culture.
Served in a traditional calabash gourd and metal straw/filter.

My preferred beverage during work meetings.
