Mate de Coca

Mr. Hunter continues to prepare for the high altitude.
This second serving of coca tea was tea made from actual coca leaves.

This cup of tea was served in a much colder location.  
The inelegant but apt phrase "butt cold" comes to mind.

About coca tea...

My mom was especially intrigued to see that mate de coca might help alleviate arthritis pain.  The coca tea was not very tasty, but it certainly seemed to help ward off altitude sickness.
