Una prueba de mate


Yesterday we spent a relaxing afternoon at the school trying mate, an herbal tea that is super popular in Argentina. It is commonly drunk socially, passing the mate cup around the circle for each person to enjoy through a bombilla (straw). One cup of yerba mate leaves lasts for a while, so between each person, the person who originally prepared the mate refills the cup with hot water and passes it to the next person. We got to try mate dulce (with sugar) and mate amargo (without sugar).
