£5.99

Brazilian mate tea

This national beverage with caffeine originally comes from Paraguay, South Brazil and Argentina. The tea comes from the green leaves of a type of holly that is said to have manifold good effects. Therefore in South America Mate tea is also called "Beverage of the Gods". Drinking Mate out of one cup was something ritual with the native Indians. Later Brazilian Mate became the most popular drink of the Gauchos, the South American cowboys. Mostly enjoyed outside at the campfire, it became the national drink in almost every country on the continent over the years. Its stimulating effect lasts longer than that of coffee. A short infusion time brings about a stimulating effect, longer weakens it.
