How to use a wooden yerba mate cup :
Before you use your new wooden mate cup for the first time we suggest you rinse it with boiled water a couple of times
as sometimes wood leaches out some resins and/or tannins.
Wood is highly sensitive to temperature changes so we suggest you increase the water temperature gradually.
The water may look brown but is in no way harmful and with progressive water changes this leaching will gradually disappear.
On the same hand due to temperature-sensitive, wooden mate cups have a tendency to crack when they dry out, so you need to rinse the cup thoroughly and
put fresh water into the cup until you are ready to use it the next time.
If you drink mate EVERY day, you may leave the moist mate in the cup overnight until you are ready to prepare your next cup.
Do not leave the moist tea in the cup over 24 hours as it will mold.
The most traditional way to drink yerba mate is like the Indians did - from a cup (gourd) and straw (bombilla). Genuine mate drinkers say a well "cured" mate contributes to the good taste of the drink. Also by using the cup and straw it forcibly removes far more of the valuable nutrients which yerba mate has to offer. Other methods do not. You
will need to try your own combination of cups and straws as yerba mate will taste differently in each type. Each person must experiment to find which best suits his taste
Yerba Mate cups can be made from many different types of material.
These include the natural gourd, wood, horns, ceramic, glass or metal.
