Considering its mythical origin and seemingly magical properties, the early Jesuits’ mistrust of this powerful Guaraní herb was understandable. They voiced opposition to its use, deeming it a “demonic” pagan beverage given to the “tribal witches” by Tupá – none other than Lucifer himself. They forbade its consumption in their territories and decreed the worst of all punishments for those who disobeyed, excommunication.

By 1596 the consumption of mate as a beverage had become so common in Paraguay that a member of the cabildo of Asunción wrote to governor of Río de la Plata Hernando Arias de Saavedra:

"the vice and bad habit of drinking yerba has spread so much among the Spaniards, their women and children, that unlike the Indians that are content to drink it once a day they drink it continuously and those who do not drink it are very rare."

The same author of the letter went on to claim that Spanish settlers sold their clothing, weapons and horses or fell into debt to obtain yerba mate

A couple of pictures of the Pope drinking this beverage
hardly qualifies you to claim that he is "addicted" to
it.

What are you seeing in his behavior that would suggest to
you that this drink is responsible for some negative change?

Kindof a weak theory.

I've had it. It doesn't get you high or anything. It's basically ginseng in its effects.

So, I wouldn't worry too much. Now his cocain habit...

Lol, in south of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina, almost everyone drinks mate. The entire family drinks it together. It has diuretic properties and has caffeine, which boosts one's energy a bit. And while drinking mate, we have the opportunity to have a good talk about anything interesting.
