Could anyone travelling from Buenos Aires to Amsterdam in the near future be so enormously kind as to bring me a large bag of mate leafs?

It concerns the brand "La hoja", which is not on sale in Europe. I don't want to burden my argentine friends because the costs of mailing it to me are so high, but I am only going there myself in July, and I ran out of tea now...

I very much appreciate your kindness,
cheers, Niels (Amsterdam)

Do you mean yerba mate or mate de coca? However, I'm back home already and the only Dutch guy I met in SA is in Europe too. I've got a Swedish friend who is in Peru right now and coming home in June, but I don't think she will go back to Argentina... SOrry!

Mate de coca? What a disgusting combination, I wasn't aware they sold that :-)

Both have good tastes separately; but I meant yerba de mate. Anyone knowing anyone who flies this itinerary, please let me know, I'm showing signs of detox already ;-)
