Yerba mate is a tea brewed from the dried leaves and stem of the South American holly tree. Its flavor is noted as “robust, earthy, and smoky.” Often called “happy tea,” yerba mate is naturally caffeinated and contains 90% more nutrition than green tea—including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are said to improve concentration, relieve stress, and elevate mood. The caffeine delivers a steady stream of natural energy without uncomfortable jitters or crashes.
The grand opening will be held Friday, July 17, from 10am-4pm. RSVP for your time slot at drinkerva.com. The event is free to attend and will also be streamed on Instagram Live.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
