Mate in Argentina is what makes their world go 'round. Travelling through the Pampas years ago I met many families who shared their cups of mate as a symbol of our new friendship.

I ended up with a very cool and extensive collection of Argentinian artifacts. I use to wonder why and how the people there would chat for hours, gathering around the boiling pot and pouring hot water into the mate and talk for hours upon hours about love, politics, the state of the world and music.

It was lovely! Mate tea is available in Whole Foods Markets and stores online. You place a few scoops of the tea into the cup and add sugar then insert the special mate straw which has a perforated bulbous head. You wait a few minutes for it to cool down...and then sip. You must pass it on to the person sitting next to you. The water gets boiled again and so the stories go on!

This wooden mate is an everyday mate. Use as a planter or decorative piece if its not your cup of tea!

Thanks for looking!
