Mate is a traditional South American infusion, which is not common and usually expensive in Europe. I'm travelling to France soon so I'm taking a bunch of it (the yerba mates leaves, not a liquid) for friends, and friends of friends. I'm wondering if this will make my luggage look extremely suspicious, and perhaps cause me to experience a delay while they check it or something.
I have previously taken a couple kilograms without any issue, but this time it would be about half of my case :).
UPDATE: I ended up taking 6kg, along with 6 bottles of wine/liquors and absolutely nothing happened :).
