What's the name of the stuff....

I know ambiguous thread title. But, a couple of months ago, there was a thread about a tea-substance that you drink out of some sort of gourd. I believe it was from South America. Anyone know the name of this stuff?

Find a Ethnic Grocery store, much cheaper then buying on line and paying shipping costs.

That's my thought. Parts of New Orleans have become Little Mexico since Katrina. I'm planning to visit one of those stores, but in my experience with them, I better bring a translator with me.
