Mate (Mah-tay) is a drink (we like to say lifestyle) that is made from the crushed up leaves of a tree native to South America. It is the national drink of countries such as Argentina, Paraguay, & Uruguay, and has been consumed for hundreds of years. Mate has been referred to as the "Drink of the Gods," and "Green Gold," but we like to just call it the "Drink of Friendship."
