A variant on the famous Argentinian drink. Very fresh and mellow.
Put 2g of yerba mate in a calabash gourd (the hollowed-squash recipient used for serving yerba mate), add a few fennel seeds (according to your desired strength of aniseed flavour). Pour in the syrup and add boiling water. Stir while crushing gently with a bomdilla (an iron straw for filtering and drinking yerba mate).
