Maté is served with a metal straw in a container typically made from a calabash gourd.

This beautiful object belongs to my Family since the ’60. From Brazil.

I want to share the photo, I took today, of this beautiful Brazilian Maté Calabash, a beautiful object coming out from my past💚, from one of my previous lives 😉 : In Brazil, in the middle sixties😊✌🏾🇧🇷

Maté or Yerba Maté also known as chimarrão or cimarrón, is a traditional South American caffeine-rich infused drink. It is made by soaking dried leaves of the holly species Ilex paraguariensis in hot water and is served with a metal straw in a container typically made from a calabash gourd.

Yerba Mate was consumed by the Guaraní and Tupí peoples. It has been consumed in America since pre-Columbian times. Its consumption was exclusive to the natives of two regions of the territory that today is Paraguay, more specifically the departments of Amambay and Alto Paraná. Some ethnic groups that consumed it are the Avá, the Mbyá and the Kaiowa, and also, to a lesser extent, by other ethnic groups that carried out trade with them, such as the ñandevá, the Taluhets (ancient pampas) and the Qom (Tobas). It is the national beverage of Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay and is also consumed in the Bolivian Chaco, Northern and Southern Chile, Southern Brazil, Syria (the largest importer in the world) and Lebanon, where it was brought from Paraguay and Argentina by immigrants.
