Description

  • How to cure your Argentinian Mate Cup

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

  • Shall we make a Mate Drink?

You will need yerba, a “bombilla” and hot water. Put yerba up to three quarters of the mate cup. Cover it with your hand and shake it, leaving a smaller amount of yerba 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 “bombilla” would go. Let it rest for a minute. Continue pouring the water in the wet side, keeping the other one dry. Place the “bombilla” on the wet side, covering it with your thumb so that no air enters in it.

   ❤  How to take care of your Handcrafted Mate Cup

Wash the inside after use, only with water and never leave it wet. In this way, you can prevent the ferrule from coming out and the leather from shrinking.

  • Material

The Algarrobo Tree it’s autochthonous to the “Gran Chaco” ecoregion, of which a sector of Argentine Mesopotamia is a part. Known for its branches with small flowers, and stable and reliable wood, the Algarrobo is always a wise choice for wood mates.

All the materials we use to craft our mates are ideal for combining with Nickel Silver or Stainless Steel Mate Straws.
