Category:Mate (beverage)

English: Mate or cimarrón, is a traditional South American infused drink, particularly in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, southern states of Brazil, south of Chile, the Bolivian Chaco, and two countries in the Middle East; Syria and Lebanon. It is prepared from steeping dried leaves of yerba mate (llex paraguariensis, known in Portuguese as erva mate) in hot water.
Español: Se denomina mate a la infusión preparada con hojas de yerba mate (Ilex paraguayensis), una planta originaria de las cuencas de los ríos Paraná, Paraguay y Uruguay, previamente secadas, cortadas y molidas. La yerba mate debe su sabor amargo a los taninos de sus hojas, es por esto que hay quienes gustan de endulzar un poco el mate con azúcar, miel, o endulzante no calórico; y la espuma que se genera al cebar, es a causa de los glicósidos que la yerba contiene.
