This is a picture of a what a typical cup of yerba mate looks like in Argentina. The mate is served warm in a gourd and it is drank with a bombilla. Yerba mate isn't just for special occasions, it can be enjoyed on a daily basis.
As the mate gourd is passed around, a sense of connection emerges. The first step of the ceremony is the preparation of the gourd. Typically, the cebador/a - mate server - prepares mate for a friend or a group of friends.
