How to prepare yerba mate tea with a bombilla.
1) Fill the cup roughly ½ capacity.
2) Cover the top of gourd with palm, invert 180º and gently shake up and down, bringing fine particles to the top and leaving the larger ones below, to act as a natural filter.
3) Slowly revert gourd to 45º to gently pour cold or room temp water (this is called Dummy Water), helping to protect the herb’s vital nutrients from the hot water (set gourd down for 1 minute.)
4) Insert bombilla directly in the void (waterhole), alongside the gourds wall.
