It was said that Yerba Mate was introduced by Pa’i Shume, the god of health and medicine. When received in weak amounts it is a cleanser to the auric field, opening the field to a much greater capacity of feeling and clarity.
In South America, Peppermint and Vanilla Bean are used as natural sweeteners, and together with these other nourishing herbs, creates a delicious “Chocolate Chai”.
Traditionally, this is drunk from a Mate Cup with a Bombilla ( a straw with a built-in tea strainer), however, this is another way to enjoy -
The Art of making and receiving Cocoa Mate’ Bliss :-
- 1 dessert spoon per mug size
- 2 dessert spoon per small tea pot
- Take a teapot with a strainer, or a plunger
- Add amount desired plus the whole vanilla bean, or cut in half to fit.
- Pour boiling water or your favourite milk
- Leave to steep for 5-6 minutes
- Swirl or stir before pouring through strainer into the cup
- Keep stirring throughout drinking to keep the flavour and aroma moving
At the end take the vanilla bean, rinse it under water, and leave to dry in a clean place. Then it is ready for reuse when you have your next cup of Cocoa Mate’ Bliss.
Take a moment and close your eyes; take a deep breath; smell the spicy chocolate aroma; Sip it; taste it, feel it, enjoy it !
Add milk or honey to taste if you wish.
This drink can be made on milk by doing the same process in a saucepan on the stove, if you don’t have a tea pot or plunger.
