Yerba Maté, or lex paraguariensis, is a leaf that originates in Brazil. It has been used as an agent of pleasure for millennia. Maté has been proclaimed the symbolic tree of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.
The Guarani and Caingang believed maté allowed them to establish contact with the supernatural world. They believed that a spirit named Ka’a Yary lives in the maté tree and protects good, industrious workers and punished those who do not believe in plant souls.
