Yerba mate is a stimulating drink from South America. This dried herbal tea is steeped in hot water and sipped from a gourd or cup. The straw is a very important accessory in mate drinking - the filter at its end blocks the tea leaves from entering the straw.

Yerba mate has been a popular drink for thousands of years and was first enjoyed by the native population of South America. It remains popular, especially in Argentina and Brazil. There it is enjoyed as a communal drink, where a cup is passed between family members or friends.

Yerba mate is a stimulating beverage that is sipped throughout the day. Unlike coffee or tea, it has no jittery side effects and is also known to have calming affects. To enjoy this herbal tea, steep in hot water and sip slowly. Unlike regular tea, it can be repeatedly refreshed with hot water.
