Maté/ Yerba Maté
mate or yerba mate is a South American native species whose leaves, which are roasted and pulverized, provide, infused in hot water, a stimulating drink, similar to the coffee or tea effects. The Jesuits developed its culture in the seventeenth century and spread to neighboring countries : Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, Argentina and the southern provinces of Brazil. Mate word used in Spanish-speaking countries comes from the Quechua mathi, which means a kind of gourd container traditionally used to drink mate and still used until now.
mate contains xanthine bases : caffeine, theobromine, theophylline. It also contains flavonoids, triterpene saponins and vitamins.
