Cool down with a cold maté in Paraguay
This stimulating, bitter, traditional tealike beverage is taken communally as a social activity, and although Paraguay’s neighboring countries—Chile, Argentina, Uruguay—drink it with hot water from a thermos, Paraguayans make and drink it cold (and often prefer to call it terere). You might see some people drinking it without a bombilla (straw with a filter at the end), too; true terere partakers drink right from the side of the hollowed-out gourd, filtering the looseleaf tea with their teeth. See our Paraguay Travel Guide.
