Joe, is that anything like the Yerbal Maté that Uruguayans love? It is based
on Ilex paraguayensis and contains stimulants related to caffeine and about
120 odd other vitamins and dietary supplements.
Lee, The Yerbal Mate that Uruguayans love are actually loved also by argentinians, and brasilians (from the south) and is based in the Mate erb, not coca. It is prepared diferently in each place, can be drunk cold or very hot, and because of the caffeine it is a good stimulating and does addict as well (thats perhaps why they love). The coca tea works diferently in your body. In Peru they also chew the coca leaf, its is more powerfull and easy, it can be done while they walk on the montains. So, I would recomend to try this leeaf just as well.
