Yerba Mate is something very special. It is known as the coffee of tea without the highs and lows !!
This national beverage with caffeine originally comes from Paraguay, southern Brazil and Argentina. Drinking Mate out of one cup was a ritual and sometimes had the function of a peace-pipe with the natives. Later Brazilian Mate became the most popular drink of the Gauchos, the South American cowboys. Mostly enjoyed outside at the campfire, it became the national drink in almost every country in the continent over the years.
Caffeine: None (gives you lots of energy but doesn't effect the nervous system)
