Chew Qat, Roast Coffee Samples

Chew Qat, Roast Coffee Samples

It is typical to sit around, rest and chew the leaves of this shrub called Qat (Quat, Chat, pronounced Gat in Yemen) after lunch (which is by far the big meal of the day). Qat is a stimulant, much milder than coffee, but the country is fairly obsessed with it and it competes with coffee for land and resources. It's milder than coffee ... then again most people don't drink coffee continuously for 3 hours in the afternoon!
