AMANDA is one of the most popular and most drunk tea brands in Argentina. La Cachuera S.A is the oldest active company in the province of Misiones, with more than 90 years of experience in the processing of yerba mate.
Yerba mate is used to prepare mate tea. When the drink is served cold, it is called tereré. Mate tea is traditionally consumed in South America but is also popular in Syria and Lebanon.
Yerba mate translates to mate herb, with the word mate originally deriving from the word mati, a complex Quechua word with multiple meanings. Mati means, among other things, "container for a drink", "infusion of a herb" and "calabash". The infusion is drunk from a container (typically a gourd) filled three-fourths full with dry leaves (and stems) of the mate plant. The leaves are infused with water at a temperature of 70-80 °C. The gourd is also called guampa, porongo or cuia depending on the country. You drink through a special metal straw (bombilla in Spanish, bomba in Portuguese). The calabash is passed and refilled from one person to the other (usually in a circle of seats).
