  • How to cure your Argentinian Mate

Place used yerba mate, or yerba mate and then warm water. Let rest for 24 hours. Finally,  discard the yerba with the help of a spoon or mate straw, making sure to remove all the excess.

  • Shall we make a Mate Drink?

To prepare your first mate drink or “mate” you will need yerba mate, a mate straw or “bombilla”, hot water and of course a mate cup. Put yerba mate up to three quarters of the mate cup. Cover it with your hand and shake it, leaving a smaller amount of yerba mate at the base and more near the ferrule, forming a “little cliff”. Serve water in the part with the least amount of yerba, where the mate straw would go. Let the mate rest for a minute. Continue pouring the water in the wet side of the mate cup, keeping the other side dry. Place the mate strew on the wet side, covering it with your thumb so that no air enters in it. Enjoy your mate!  

All the materials we use to craft our “bombillas” are ideal for combining with your favourite Mate Cup.
