Yerba Mate, or Mate Rancho, is a highly stimulative beverage made from an alternative plant to tea found in South America where it is extremely popular.
Especially popular in Argentina and Brazil, it is known as Ché Guevara’s favourite drink. Yerba Mate was originally a beverage enjoyed primarily by the South American Indians.
A strong taste and an energising effect helping the weary gaucho through the sun baked pampas.
Mate is best enjoyed through a gourd sipped slowly through a ‘bombilla’ – that’s a stainless steel drinking straw to you and me!
