"If offered, partake in mate,..." Argentina Off The Beaten Path Tip by glicko

Argentina Off The Beaten Path: 112 reviews and 108 photos

If offered, partake in <i>mate</i>, an concoction of bitter herbs and hot water which you drink from a decorative cup through an ornate metal straw. Depending on which part of Argentina you are in at the time, the mate may or may not be mixed with sugar. Yes, it is an acquired taste. But I bet you didn't like beer the first time you tried it either!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
