Anybody drinking mate?

I’m just sitting in front of a steaming mate and wondered if anyone else here enjoys this energizing, oh-so-often life-saving beverage?

Ah yes, matè . (ALT 138)
It always made my lips numb. There’s a straw like thing to drink it from.
Enjoy the buzz.

[edit]Oops! It was Kava Kava that made my lips numb. Perhaps I need one or the other. :)[/edit]

i like mate

I read the title as “Anyone drinking, mate?” and thought it was going to be an invitation to the pub.

Disappointed. :frowning:
