From Misiones to Chubut, from teacher to taster

Her name is Liliana Shafer and, although her roots are the red lands, she has lived in Puerto Madryn for 11 years. She retired and today she is a taster of weed.

Stories of people

This Missionary based in Chubut  is today a retired teacher and taster of yerba . Mother of three female daughters and wife of a Buenos Aires with whom she shares the same vocation, teaching.

As they say, behind each person there is a great passion, and this does not always have to do with the profession one chooses. Her husband, for example, has a passion for journalism (activity he performs simultaneously with teaching). In the case of  Liliana , it is  mate and that ritual that is born around him, which encourages us to share with others.

So, once the retirement procedure was achieved, and after major struggles that included a whole month in  Misiones  to accommodate papers, I return to Madryn. It was a few months ago that he had this project going around, and he had even taken advantage of one of her trips to Buenos Aires to take a course as a  yerba mate taster. 

Your Entrepreneurship

Yeah, just like they read it.  She's a yerba taster!  He started this venture a couple of months ago, giving advice on  Instagram . Today Liliana receives daily photos and consultations from users of the network, who, guided by her advice, are waiting for the expert's good view.

 María Josefina Armendares , agronomist and yerba mate sommelier, led her to learn this craft and to be able to dump all the senses to know the different herbs, aromas, colors, textures and flavors.

 In “the prettiest “,  Lily as her relatives tell her, she performs yerba tastings  . The meetings include some  anecdotal reviews  about the history of  yerba mate , the  different varieties  ,  techniques for priming ,  types of mattes , among others. In addition, they share typical missionary meals, such as the well-known “chipas” from the colourful lands.

This taster also shares artisanal herba blends that she herself prepares.  Orange , coconut, red fruits,  lemon and endless flavors for all lovers of mate.
