There is a great debate going on around the popular South American drink, Yerba Mate. Researchers in South America (SA) claim that mateine is a different form of caffeine than is found in coffee, soda, etc. North American (NA) researchers claim both are the same. Now I am no chemist so knowing the difference between the molecules of mateine vs. caffeine absolutely does not interest me! What does interest me is the tea itself.
Yerba Mate is a subtropical shrub or small tree grown in Argentina, eastern Paraguay, western Uruguay and southern...

One of the teas that reminds me of the holiday season is our Market Spice Tea. Market Spice was created at Pikes Place Market in Seattle. I have fond memories of visiting my aunt, going to Pikes Place and getting some of this tea. Before I was The Tea Lady, my aunt would ship me in boxes of it. It honestly is one of my favorite all time teas.
The taste is of heavy cinnamon, cloves, and orange. It tastes...
