How to Make Your Own Cup of Yerba Mate
- Cold water
- Hot water
- ½ cup Yerba Mate leaves (amount depends on gourd size)
- Yerba Mate gourd
- Bombilla kettle thermos (optional)
Fill the gourd with Yerba Mate until roughly 2/3 full. With your palm over the top of the gourd, tilt to one side, and shake the Yerba Mate to one side of the gourd. Lay the bombilla (filter side down) over the Yerba Mate, preserving the gap. Pour a little cold water into the gap you've made, inside the gourd. Keep the gourd tilted until the water has been absorbed by the Yerba Mate. Now add your hot water into the reservoir. It should be no more than 150 degrees F. Fill it to the top. Enjoy your Yerba Mate by drinking from the bombilla. Your gourd can be refilled 15-20 times with the same Yerba Mate.
