OliveNation's Perfect Cup of Mate

Difficulty:Easy

Ingredients

    Description

    Yerba Mate is traditionally served with a metal straw (bombilla) from a shared hollow calabash gourd. Whether brewed traditionally in a mate gourd, steeped like tea, or even brewed like coffee in a French press or an espresso maker, there are many ways Mate can be enjoyed. We brew it like other types of infusions or teas: Rinse the Yerba Mate with cool water before brewing Place 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Mate in a strainer on top of your mug (or in a tea ball or sachet). Add hot water (160–180 °F) to the mug. Steep for at least 5 minutes. Remove the Mate and enjoy*. Mate can be sweetened with juices, sugars and different types of milk, according to your taste. *More water can be added to infuse the Mate several times. Photo courtesy of www.sciencedaily.com
