Herbal and fruit infusion with lemon taste
Mate is also known as yerba mate and has its origins in Southern America. It is a caffeine-rich infused drink which is extremely popular in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. There is is also known as a national beverage.
The mate leaves are infused with hot, not boiling water into a calebash gourd and then drunk using a straw called bombilla . This used to be silver, but nowadays it is usually made of stainless steel. It looks like a straw and at the bottom. At the end of the straw there are holes in it which act like a sieve.
If you are unsure how to do it the traditional way, then have a look at videos on the internet.
