Yerba maté is native to the rain forests of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil. The people of South America have used yerba maté as a household cure for hundreds of years. Thought to ensure health, vitality, and longevity, the sacred beverage has been used to treat illness and disease, fight fatigue, and detoxify the body. The tea is considered Paraguay's national drink, and gauchos, or South American cowboys, consume maté as their "liquid vegetable" in a diet that otherwise consists mainly of meat. . . more info under "MORE INFORMATION" tab
