The origin of mate dates back to the Guarani natives, they used the leaves of the tree as a drink, an object of worship and a currency of exchange with other peoples. During the long journeys through the jungle, the conquerors noticed that the Guarani had greater resistance after taking this sacred drink.

The stems option of mates is generally more popular in Argentina and Paraguay. This stem, lead to a slower release of flavor, suiting the milder flavor profile of terere, which is often blended with other herbs, juices, and sugar.

Yerba mate with stems is a little lighter as the stems serve to dilute the blend.
