Have the experience of trying mate tea in Buenos Aires

There is no person in my city who's not having a mate. Mate tea is what connect us; argentineans love to talk and share stories while they drink mate infusion

It is prepared by steeping dried leaves of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) in hot water (but not boiling) and it is served with a metal straw from a shared hollow calabash gourd.

The recipient can be done by diferents matterials: wood, wood and metal, lether or sillicone. The wood ones are, of course, the best ones

The flavour of the mate is in general bitter, althought it can be avoid by adding sugar or sweetener

Being Very similar to tee or coffee, Mate is absolutely good for your health
