This South American herb has grown in popularity throughout Europe, and as far as Levantine countries like Syria and Lebanon. Yerba mate is often used to make a tea known for its stimulant properties, and camaraderie-inspiring spirit. This herby, earthy, and green flavored drink naturally contains the same stimulating properties as coffee, tea, and chocolate.
