Brewing Your Yerba Mate
The tradition of drinking yerba mate is such an important part of the South American culture. This is specifically true 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.
In Paraguay it is more traditional to enjoy mate or tereré from a Guampa (mate cup made from horn) or a wooden cup, but of course, Paraguayan yerba is just as suited to drinking from a natural gourd, or any other type of mate cup, of course with a bombilla!
