Tereré – mate made cold

  1. Argentina should hire you to be the spokesperson for Yerba mate, and Paraguay for terere!

    Next time I see some in a specialty store, I’m going to buy a bag, regardless of cost. You make it sound so good.

    How come these beverages haven’t caught on in the U.S.? Maybe you’ll introduce them to the U.S. public…

    1. The funny thing is that Tully’s did try selling yerba mate a few years ago. They sold the beverage in the stores mixed with a lot of sugar and then you could buy the gourd and straw as well, but then they went on clearance right away, so not big sellers. I think you’ll really like yerba mate. It’s so good! Tazo has a mate tea, although it’s totally different than the actual full on yerba.

  2. I think I might consider sharing a gourd and straw with you but only because the straw is metal. Knowing you a paper straw would be all wet. Love you both – miss you.

    1. You’re not worried about backwash? I could have some sort of drool cloth I could use to wipe off the metal straw between drinks. You know I’m bringing mate with me to Chicago, so get ready for some mate drinking.

  3. I’ll has some yerba mate leaves waiting for you when you come to Charlotte. You can be our yerba mate barrista and show us how to make it. Good friends, good mate, good life on the road.

  4. I cant wait to taste some, someday. What is the recipe for the guacamole deviled eggs? They sound fantastic too. Do you drink the mate with the eggs?

    Great blog

    1. The eggs are so simple. You just boil the eggs, take the yolk out, mix the yolk with some avocado and minced onions. I would add cilantro. We can’t find fresh cilantro here, but that would make them even more insanely delicious. Then you just put the avocado yolk mixture back in the boiled egg whites. We ate first, then drank the terere, although I think they would have gone well together.

    1. You might have just hit on a million dollar invention. A straw “protector” would be perfect for the germ-a-phobes who don’t want to share.

  5. Love the music. Nice choice. I totally want one of those eggs. Maybe you can get the recipe or not if it is just guacamole and hard boiled eggs. The Mate sounds interesting too.

    1. The eggs are so easy, just boil eggs, take out yolk, mix yolk with avocado and minced onions, put back into the egg whites. They are SOOO good.

  6. Did you hear that Brenda made the eggs for Hong’s poker party? She was inspired by your post. I almost made the same. They were good.

    1. I think i could eat a dozen of those eggs every day. They are so good. I want Brenda to do a egg cookbook of all different things to put in boiled eggs. She has all these good filling ideas. We should have an egg party when we get back.
