It has been proven that starting your day out with a good mate session makes you a better rider. Maybe not, but if there were ever any studies, these studies may prove it. There is not much better than taking some extra time in the morning to get all fired up on this green tea-like beverage. Of course, most people use coffee to receive their caffeine fix, but mate provides a less jittery buzz. No question it will get you fired up, but it allows you to think much clearer than with coffee. Allowing you to focus on those sick pow turns or triple corks.
Choosing a yerba mate can be a difficult process. Should you go for stems or without and which brand? I am here to save you the headache. Rosamonte makes a superior product and their ‘Seleccion Especial’ provides a taste that is heads and shoulders over the competition. Some may think mate is a little bitter at first, but for those beginners I recommend putting a bit of honey or sugar in there to cut the edge. So if you want to step up your game, go out there and get yourself a Kg of Rosamonte Seleccion Especial and feel the difference.
