Origin: South America
The herbal yerba mate plant is native to South America, where it was first brewed and served as a stimulant by indigenous tribes. You'll find it's particularly popular in the central and southern parts of the continent, where it's a social drink served as a stimulant and sipped from gourds.
Herbs in a Gourd
Yerba mate takes its name from the Spanish word for herb – "hierba" – and the Quechuan word "mati", meaning "drink" or "gourd". Travelling around South America, you may well be offered a gourd of the legendary brew shared among friends – one sip, and they say you'll be jumping from tree to tree.
