I was first introduced to a Mate Latte at my favorite little coffee drive-thru, The Human Bean, in Seaside, Oregon. I am a big tea drinker and all about antioxidants, so the barista recommended I try this. It has a bit of a bite to it ... kinda like chai. The cinnamon-y drink revs up your metabolism and jump starts your energy levels! With a combination of 3 energy boosters, the pep in your step is way more balanced than your average caffeine kick, and there is no hard crash at the end.
I definitely recommend you try this. If your local coffee shop isn't offering Mate (I know it's not on the Starbucks menu), you can get it at your local health food store in the tea aisle. New Seasons and Trader Joe's have carried this, and I have even seen it in the grocery stores. Mix it up at home and enjoy!
