The California based company Guayaki Sustainable Rainforest Products is introducing North Americans to the traditional South American drink mate. Right now, they are launching an entire line of mate products in the United States, from traditional mate to mate tea blends and even mate latte concentrates. A distinctive part of Argentine culture, mate is good for the body and the environment. According to a press release, the growth of mate, when done responsibly, actually subtracts more carbon from the air then it emits. Guayaki gets their mate from small family farms in Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay and pays them a fair-trade price, two times what they get normally. With these products on the market, American tourists may be a little bit more prepared to enjoy mate when they visit Argentina.
