Reasonably Priced YERBA MATE in Boston Area?
Anyone know where I can find loose leaf bags of Yerba Mate in the Boston area? I've been buying the tea bags at Trader Joe's, but they are getting expensive!
Trader Joe's is the cheapest I know for the Yerba bagged tea. Lots of online sources for loose matte, if you have a bomba

Are you looking for tea bags, or are you looking for loose yerba mate?
I would try some of the Brazilian markets, since I think they sometimes have it....there's the one on Somerville Ave between Union and Porter, and maybe Market Basket in Somerville would be worth a try too.
Capone's in Union Sq., Somerville, had large bags (probably one pound) of bulk tea for $7.95 today.
middle-eastern markets carry it as syrian/lebanese in south america discovered Yerba Mate. have seen it at Cedars in Norwood downtown, the place by Job Lot on Rt 1 heading towards Walpole, just check your area? 2-3 dollars gets you a 500g "brick". south-american grocers of Eastie, Roxbury (probably Lynn, Revere) have it. Tropical had enormous bags of Taragui, Rosamente, & Cruz De Malta last week (thru the narrow passageway to Room 2 and take a right then a quick left)
