Feeling a little tired by 3pm on Friday in Byron, I was attracted by the ‘clean energy’ claim for the Yerba Mate drink in Elixiba, near the roundabout off Jonson St. The mate managed to do what the double espressos had failed to do – give me another lift in energy, but make me feel good at the same time.

It’s said to offer the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate in one beverage. It also came in an interesting ‘plant-like’ glass. Big thumbs up from me.
