Brewing Your Yerba Mate
The tradition of drinking yerba mate is such an important part of the South American culture, specifically in Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, although it is also enjoyed in other South American countries. Typically, it is drunk from a natural gourd (a hollowed out fruit) used as a cup, and then sipped through a metal straw known as a bombilla that has a filtered end to separate the infusion from the yerba leaves.
With any purchase of loose leaf yerba, full photo instructions will be provided on how to brew the perfect yerba mate. Preparation is key: if you get it right, your yerba will always taste great, and last twice as long. Practice makes perfect!
