MATE
Maté is the popular beverage of the River Plate region. It is a tea made from the dried leaves of the “yerba maté” plant. Most typically, it is made in, and then drunk from, a receptacle made from the husk of a small gourd, itself called a maté. These can also be made of other materials such as wood, china or bone. The maté is drunk through a type of metal straw with a perforated bulbous end called a “bombilla”. Maté is a stimulant, contains various nutrients, and is held to be good for the digestion. It was drunk by the Guarani Indians long before the Spanish conquest. The conquistadors took to the habit, and also developed it as a commercial crop. Drinking maté is an everyday habit today for the majority of people from all social classes in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, and it is felt by many to be an essential part of being from the River Plate region.
