Everything you need for mate is in here

Mate is an original and traditional South American drink. Bring the sun of South America home with this mate gift box! You will find in it the drinking vessel (a so-called calabash), a drinking straw (bombilla) made of stainless steel and green mate tea from Brazil.

You can choose between two calabashes: Either you choose the traditional, authentic gourd or modern and easy to clean stainless steel.

The bottle gourd is native to the provinces of Chaco, Misiones and Formosa in northern Argentina. Please read the instructions below carefully.

The stainless steel calabash has two major advantages: it is easy to clean with detergent and it is double-walled. This keeps the mate warm longer and your hands are protected.

Very important: the gourd calabash must be prepared before the first use. This process is called “curado”. To do this, pour mate and warm water into the calabash and let it steep for 24 hours. During this time, the calabash must not dry out! Finally, remove the contents and carefully scrape the inside of the calabash with a teaspoon. Repeat this process for 4 consecutive days. The color of the calabash will change due to the mate tea. This is intentional and a sign that the calabash is ready for use.

Bottle gourd is a natural material that can mold. Therefore, never leave water in the calabash for a long time (except for the Curado). Rinse the calabash after each use and allow it to dry out regularly and completely with the opening facing up.

Mate is rich in caffeine and tastes very tart. It is a social drink, traditionally shared with others. It is a symbol of hospitality.

Responsible entrepreneur according to Art. 8 para. 1 LMIV is:

Bean & Leaf Henrik Stamm,
Anemonenweg 11c, DE-22047 Hamburg

And this is how you make mate at home:

  1. Take the calabash and put the bombilla (drinking straw) in it at an angle
  2. Now fill the mate to the very top
  3. Now fill the calabash with 70°C hot water. Important: Do not stir! The bombilla remains in its position.
  4. Drink the mate tea immediately. The first infusion is the most bitter, so traditionally the host drinks it
  5. Keep adding water and pass the calabash around the circle – or keep it all to yourself. That’s absolutely understandable.

There are also many alternative methods of preparation- even preparation in a tea strainer is possible.

By the way, we have summarized everything you need to know about the preparation of mate here.
