How To Make Mate Tea

Traditional mate should always be prepared with hot water, never boiling, while the varieties may employ cold water, sweeteners, fruit juice, or other additions.Mate is a herbal infusion prepared with dried and ground leaves of the yerba mate plant.

The drink originated among the native Guarani people who are believed to have been the first to harvest the plant and make mate.

The leaves are traditionally steeped and served in a hollowed gourd, together with a bombilla—a specialized metal straw that also functions as a sieve.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE MATE TEA

Heat water in a kettle to a simmer, not a boil.Fillthe gourd 2/3 full with the mate.

Tilt the gourd and slide the bombilla straw side up to the bottom of the gourd.( It’s important that the bombilla touches the bottom without any yerba around it, so it won’t get clogged.)

When you straighten the gourd, push the bombilla to the center and make sure it is still touching the bottom.Once your water is heated, pour it as close as possible to the bombilla until the yerba is moist.
