Preparation: Bring fresh water to the boil. Warm up tea-pot by rinsing it with hot water. Fill one teaspoon per 6 oz cup of this ‘Yerba Mate’ into the preheated tea-pot. Pour the boiling water into the tea. Let infuse up to 7 Minutes and serve. Remove infuser or pour your tea into another tea pot or thermos carafe. Using an infuser or ‘Permanent Tea Filter’ for your cup or pot makes it easy to separate the leaves from the beverage. Store cool and dry. Mate can also be drunk out of the Mate bowl ‘Calebasse’ using the ‘Bombilla’, the Mate drinking straw. STORE COOL, DARK AND DRY!
