Yerba Mate

Relationship: Im/migrant

Mate (ma-teh) is a beverage that people from Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and the southern side of Brazil drink. The ingredients used to make this drink are yerba, (picture in bottom left corner), hot water,sugar, a bombilla (picture in bottom right corner) and the gourd (picture in top right corner). Mate is important to my family and it means a lot to them because they feel as if they have a part of Uruguay in their hands.
