The Guaraní were the aborigines that lived in the Paraguayan forest before the Spanish people arrived. They were nomads and theymoved around the territory looking for newlands to farm. One day,when a tribe was about to move to a new location, one of the oldestmen decided to stay because he felt tired and weak for the journey.His daughter Yari stayed with him because she didn’t want to leavehim alone. Soon they had very little to eat. At that moment, the spiritTupá descended to earth. Dressed like a nomadic hunter, Tupá askedYari for food and shelter for the night. Extremely generous, Yarioffered him hospitality and the last of her food. Her charity surprisedthe spirit and he gave her a reward. Yari asked for something to makeher father stronger and healthier.Tupá used his magic powers to growa green plant with white flowers. He taught Yari and her father to prepare tea using the plant’s leaves. When Yari’s father drank the teahe felt much better. Tupá told them to share the plant with the rest of the tribe. Now,this beverage brings comfort, health and endurance toGuaraní people.
