Afternoon tea:

Guayaki yerba mate (tea bag)

This tea, from the rainforests of Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina, has a very strong aroma and taste. The first thing that came to mind today was the barbecue soy crisps I had for lunch. It has a very strong smoky flavor, and not one I liked. I only steeped the tea bag for five minutes, but I guess you can steep for as long as ten according to Guayaki’s web site.
