1. Fill a cured mate cup just over half full with yerba mate. Tilt the gourd (cup) until the tea covers the side and almost reaches the top.

2. Before putting the straw (bombilla) in, pour hot water onto the bottom half of the drink. A temperature of 60–70ºC is best.

3. Relax while the yerba mate leaves absorb the water. This awakens the tea.

4. Put the filtered end of the mate straw into the tea, at an angle.

5. Pour hot, not boiling, water into the yerba mate tea.
