MY YERBA MATE - SMITHFIELD
I was really surprised by the taste, they made me a "mocca" style version and it had a strong flavour halfway between tea and coffee, it had a lot of body to it. Lorenza had a "latte" style and it was not as strong, I preferred the version I had. The owner of the cafe has done a lot of research into the beneficial effects of Yerba Mate and was very passionate about it. Here is a link to some info on Wikipedia. They sell 36 different varieties.
My Yerba Mate is at 895 Horsley Drive, Smithfield. They are next door to my favourite shop in Sydney - the Cooperage wine making shop.
