Young Argentinian men in traditional costume drinking Mate, a traditional South American infused drink, prepared from steeping dried leaves of yerba mate (llex paraguariensis, known in Portuguese as erva mate) in hot water. Mate is served with a metal straw from a shared hollow calabash gourd (held in this shot by the gentleman second from left at rear). The other men can be seen holding their bomba/bombilla or drinking straws. Date: circa 1910s

Tomando Mate - Argentina Featured Print

Tomando Mate - Argentina

Gaucho 'taking mate' in Argentina. Tomando mate or "taking mate," is a cultural practice, which refers literally to drinking a semi-bitter herbal infusion of crushed yerba mate leaves in hot water. One takes mate by putting the loose, crushed leaves in a mate gourd, pouring hot water (about 2 ounces at a time) over the leaves, and using a bombilla, or a metal straw with a strainer on the end to separate the water from the leaves, to drink the beverage. Few Argentines like tomando mate alone, however. This is an intensely social activity, and one person holds the thermos, pours new water into the gourd and passes it to each person in turn.
