Yerba mate tea

A cup of yerba mate tea at Michelangelo's Coffee Shop located at 114 State Street in downtown Madison, WI is an excellent way to warm-up during the cold winter months.

After taking a stroll on State Street the afternoon of New Year's day I stopped at Michelangelo's for a hot beverage. Glancing at the board, I decided to try the yerba mate tea. The tea was served in a 12 oz cup and cost $2.00. The flavor was delicious combining green tea, herbs and a hint of grass. I found the flavor to include a taste of licorice, but my companion disagreed with me.

This was the first time I tried this type of tea and I found it to be very satisfying, especially after being out in the cold.
