A gorgeous video that perfectly captures the meaning of mate, sharing, and Guayaki. A deep thank you to The Perennial Plate for their incredible storytelling. Take a walk through the rainforest with Alex Pryor and breathe the air.
Mate is Argentina's national drink. The earthy tea was first enjoyed by the Indigenous people of Eastern Paraguay -- originally harvested from under the jungle's canopy. Now is responsible for deforestation in Northern Argentina. Guayakí and Alex Pryor want to change that by bringing the plant back to its native environment. Watch this film to learn about the drink, its place in the world, and in the culture of sharing.
