Mate.


This is the 6 feet Mate to the entrance to "Galeria del Mate", is pretty curious see a giant mate, mate is an infusion of herb called literally "yerba mate" with hot water of course, is very common in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, here in Misiones usually it drinks bitter and in Buenos Aires it drink with sugar, I personally preffer sweet with a orange skin, is very tasty, of course with A Bollo.

I had to look up what yerba mate is. Sounds like it's better for me than regular tea because Wiki says it's not as acidic. Interesting. I wonder if we have it available here in Manila.
