Popular South American Tea
Legend has it that Maté was a gift from the Gods. It is the hot drink of choice in South America, where its invigorating effects and herbal, grassy notes are enjoyed by sipping from a hollow gourd (cuia) through a filtered straw (bombihla).
Preparation: 3g Maté tea (1 heaping tsp) per 8oz of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 90°C/194°F. Allow to brew 5-10 min.
