Mate & Hammock

Yerba mate is the national beverage of Paraguay. In the mornings, evenings, and all winter long, it is consumed hot as “mate.” But when the temperature rises, Paraguayans will never be far from the iced version, known as “tereré.” In any case, it’s always better with some tasty mashed herbs like mint, lemon grass, rosemary or fennel. Here yerba tea is drunk communally with the cup passed to a different person in the circle after each pouring.
