Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguensis) was known as a herb “From the Gods” by the Guarani and Tupi peoples of South America in Paraguay and Southern Brazil, used for its medicinal properties and also for improving energy and stamina.
Still commonly consumed today, most often in shared gourds, which can be made of wood, ceramic, glass, metal, dried out squash or animal horns and drunk through a straw.
Yerba mate is known as a social ritualistic drink and to this day we can enjoy the benefits of Yerba Mate.
