I’ve been hard at work recording and editing away to bring you a tutorial that I’ve been eager to share. Now you can brew mate in the comfort of your home if you have the necessary materials, namely:
- A mate
- Yerba mate leaves
- Hot water
- A bombilla (metal straw with filter)
- Sugar *optional
I’ve broken it down step by step here for you in this video.
One other step you can add is adding a few drops of cold/room temperature water to the first brew to avoid damaging the tender leaves so much. This is a good step to take when at home because cooler water is readily available. However if you’re on the run, sometimes all you have is your trusty hot water thermos, so that’s the way I did it here.
Without further ado,
