History
Maté comes from a tree, Ilex Paraguariensis, cultivated in South America. It consists of leaves that are dried and crushed to make a tea-like herb. Classified as a tropical or subtropical plant Yerba Mate requires high temperatures and humidity.

In the wild, the plant takes about 25 years to completely mature. In Argentine culture, this drink has been shared for centuries in homes and enjoyed as a daily ritual.
