The fifth day of drinking Yerba and I can tell that it really works. I don’t feel tired during the day, I’m more open for people, optimistic, my allergy to dust has been reduced, and finaly I’v been sleeping soundly all night long. Maybe it’s just coincidence or the power of suggestion. Unfortunately contact with dogs still made me rash :(
Starting day with Yerba… I don’t need coffee any more :)
Yesterday my friend discovered shop on Leven Street, Edinburgh LupePintos. They sell Mexican food, American, Indian, Thai, Indonesian and other bits. So I bought Taragui Yerba Mate from Argentina :)
I am drinking Canarias Yerba Mate from Brazil now… it is so nice…. It works for me so far. So maybe it may work for others.
That is my Yerba mate set: Jamie Oliver porcelain Mug, Ikea pot for water and bombilla made in Argentina :)
The idea of drinking Yerba mate came from desire of owning a dog. Naively thinking that it helps reduce my allergy for dog saliva.
My first lesson about Yerba mate – Do Not drink it after 5pm. The second – be prepared for the keen mind and orginal ideas like for instance buying a new domain :)
That is how martushka.com was born.
After a quick search I found a tea/coffee room called The Institute in Marchmont, Edinburgh where you can drink Yerba mate. Fantastic place. Minimalistic but very welcoming. There are only two but very original photographs on the walls. The owners are photographer Gavin Evans and circus performer Kamikaze. I will definitely come back there for more…
Walking on Marchmond streets my friend and I enjoyed the windows decorations
