Yerba Mate Tradition
Yerba máte is drunk anytime, everywhere by everybody! When an Argentine begins to partake in the yerba máte tradition it is said that he or she leaves childhood behind and starts one of the life long pleasures of adulthood. Thousands of people drink yerba máte everyday, including Argentina’s famous author Jorge Luis Borges, and even cartoon characters like Batman, Hijitus or Mendieta. Unlike coffee or tea, you can take yerba máte almost anywhere.
