This beverage is prepared with Yerba Mate, a native tree from the jungles around the Parana river, the Uruguay River and the Paraguay River. This plant with a height between 12 and 16 meters is manually harvested between the months of April and September. The ideal conditions for the cultivation of Yerba Mate can be found only in this region of South America and that is why it is only significantly produced in three countries: Argentina (world’s leading producer), Brazil and Paraguay.
1) Add Yerba Mate to the 3/4 of the Mate gourd.
2) Tap the Yerba Mate to one side of the gourd to create a 45° little slope on one side.
3) Moisten the Yerba Mate with cool water. Just a splash at the bottom of the slope.
4) Gently insert the filter tip of Bombilla (straw) into the bottom of the gourd.
Yerba Mate can be infused in plenty of ways. Find the one that fits your lifestyle!
