This is so fascinating!Largest populations for it are South America and Syria! Now I need to know what caused many Arabs to go to South America in the early 20th c., where they discovered yerba mate and then took it back to Syria.

But what i most want to know is- what does mate taste like?Smoky, grassy, bitter like matcha...? Anyone? Thx much!
