i've seen this stuff at a few supermarkets and i'm keen to try it out.
from what i understand, i need a gourd, bombilla and instructor.
is it any good? i realise we're a far way from south america, but what the heck.

never heard of it until your post. Still don't know much about it, but found this:
Yerba Mate Benefits | Yerba mate tea: Drink in moderation - Los Angeles Times

are we talking tea here? If so why would you need an instructor? :S

I guess there is no such thing as a miracle drink. Just eat healthily, be active and do most things in moderation :)
i don't really care for the health benefits tbh.
more about the flavour and culture really.
there's a whole ritual around it - it's not just as simple as throwing a bag into a boiling water and adding milk and sugar.
