Yerba mate is deeply rooted in the culture of South America, where it has been consumed for centuries. This tea, popular in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil, is known for its nutritious composition, including an abundance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that make it a healthy drink.
The appreciation for yerba mate transcends culinary boundaries and has also made its way into the sports world. It is a favorite drink of many top athletes, including world-famous soccer players such as Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo, thanks in part to the natural stimulants such as caffeine and xanthine alkaloids it contains.
The yerba mate shrub itself, which can grow into a large tree, is visually appealing with its lush green leaves and beautiful green and white flowers. Using the leaves to make tea is part of a long tradition that has not only cultural but also nutritional value in South America.
