Yerba mate in Zurich?

Hi everyone,

I have been looking for a place to buy some yerba mate here in Zurich, but have been unsuccessful so far. I did a quick google search and asked just about everyone I know, but so far I have only been able to find it already packed in a "tea bag" form. What I want instead is the actual crushed leaves that I can just put in my wooden mate cup, add hot water (and a bit of sugar) and sip with my bombilla.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, I miss my daily cup(s) of mate!

Ciao,

Federica

Go to ojo de Agua close to Rennweg, they have about 5 or 6 different ones even organic ones...

Re: Yerba mate in Zurich?

Hmmm. I love yerba mate. The last pack I got was here in the Niederdorf (the old part of Zürich): http://www.schwarzenbach.ch/g3.cms/s_page/78080/s_name/teewissen/s_level/11440.

If you want to try out the shop in Stauffacherstrasse we can add it to the shopping tour that I have planned for this coming Saturday - check the forum social calendar for details!

Re: Yerba mate in Zurich?

I know, I know you didn't ask this but in case someone wants to know, you can get it in Lausanne at the Latin American store near Palud.

If anyone wants something for Argentina my man will be in Lausanne next week. I might be able to get him to take it for you. (And that's big "no" on the coca leaves so don't ask).

Re: Yerba mate in Zurich?

I have some Mate, a nice bull horn cup and cool straw-thing. Haven't touched it in a long time. Thanks for reminding me that I still have it. Might have some tonight now

Re: Yerba mate in Zurich?

Thank you everyone for the replies. I will try the Stauffacherstrasse store later today and see what they have.

Swisspea - thanks, but unfortunately this weekend I will be out of the country visiting my parents. I sent you a PM, I will be happy to join future shopping trips for sure!

Re: Yerba mate in Zurich?

There's a shop along the water near the HB that has lots of loose teas; I've only been by it at night when it was closed, but you might check out their selection:

Teehaus Wühre
Wühre 15, 8001 Zürich

Re: Yerba mate in Zurich?

Hello Federica. I also drink mate the way you do (crashed leaves inside the mate cup and a bombilla). I have always bought yerba mate near Haupbahnhof, at "El Maiz"
