Health & Beauty A Modern Mate Setup

Mate: A social phenomenon

Epiphany Acevedo

When Rafa Royett moved to Argentina in 2011, mate was not his cup of tea. A native of Colombia, one of the world's top 5 coffee-producing nations, he spent his first year in Argentina maintaining a safe distance from the slightly pungent herbal drink. He might politely take a sip if offered, but was far from adopting the typical Argentine breakfast of mate and cookies.

Michael Cramer

Americans are entitled to do a bit of chest-beating upon learning that iced tea - that amazing thirst-quencher - was invented on native soil.

A tea exhibitor at the 1904 St. Louis Exposition could not entice a soul to try his steaming beverage. The sweltering heat drove all visitors past his wares. Until he struck upon a solution.
