La Tradición del Mate (31-01-2020)

Yerba mate Illex Paraguayensis A. St.-Hil. (L.) is a species of the holly genus Ilex (L.) which also has the characteristic red berries (technically drupes) and four lobed white flowers in common with its cousin European holly Ilex aquifolium (L.).

Its botanical name was penned by the French botanist Auguste François César Prouvençal de Saint-Hilaire who travelled approx 9,000 km from Southeast Brazil to Río de la Plata in modern day Argentina from 1816 to 1822.
