A native herb.

One way of integrating yourself into society here is to take up the culture of drinking mate, a South American infusion par excellence, made out of the native herb. Although this was predominantly a home-based culture, it has recently become a staple in locales, where you can sit down and enjoy the drink in its characteristic thermos cup. It is now becoming an alternative to coffee, sold in places all over the city, such as La Pulperia and Mister Mate in San Telmo, which was one of the pioneers in its field, Las Cabras in Palermo, Cunama in the Northern Quarter, Raices in the Nunez neighbourhood and Amanda, which has branches dotted all over the city. Another way of enjoying this infusion native to this region is to gather in a group in any green space, and relax on a bench or on the grass.
