Ancient black drink

I can tell you that my personal purification ritual also involves dancing and vomiting!

Archeologists say that the discovery of the drink so far north is evidence of the trade system that existed in North America hundreds of years before Europeans arrived. Residue from the drink was found in mug-like beakers carved with designs that suggest the beverage was used in a sacred way. The settlers’ records suggest that the black, caffeinated drink was part of a purification ritual that also involved dancing and vomiting.
