"Yerba"[edit]

Continuing from the discussion started here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Mate_%28beverage%29/Archive_1#.22Yerba.22

"Yerba mate" is not the plant name. The plant name is simply "mate" in south america, or "mate tree". Calling it "yerba mate" is a confusion outsiders make, it can be identified as simply "mate" in south america. "mate herb" (called yerba mate or erva mate in south america) usually refers to the actual crushed leaves ready for use. The plant itself is the mate tree/plant. Yerba/erva simply means herb, it is not part of the name and should not be used here. Either translate it or change it to just mate through the article. The yerba mate article should also be changed. There are many articles about south america with a lot of confusion on names in the english wikipedia. ~~ Someone living in south america

Caffeine Content?[edit]

I'm wondering why an article which includes such intricate details of the content, usage, customs and history of a simple beverage fails to mention that it is apparently loaded with a stimulant drug called caffeine. I spoke with a woman from Argentina yesterday who mentioned that she no longer drinks mate because it makes her hands shake due to the very high caffeine content. If true, this is certainly a point which should be made in the article. Some people are sensitive to caffeine while others simply do not want to ingest any drugs in their diet. Thanks.

The article discussed it at one point, and it's still mentioned in the lede, but the discussion was removed due to lack of sources. Walter Görlitz (talk) 20:28, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
