Mate (pronounced "mahtay" and also called by its full name "yerba mate)) is a medicinal and cultural drink of ancient origins. Introduced to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America, Mate contains ingredients that help keep its drinkers healthy and energetic. It is quickly replacing coffee among the health conscious and cultural hipsters. It is addictive.
