How to Cure and Prepare your Mate

Fill your yerba Mate gourd with used or new Yerba Mate tea leaves and add warm water, let it rest for 24 hours. Make sure to keep the Yerba Mate wet and add more water if needed without soaking it. After 24 hours, remove the Yerba Mate out with a spoon and slightly scrape the interior (do not wash it). Repeat the whole process one more time. Finally, clean the Mate cup with running water and you are ready to enjoy the best Mate!
