1. "Cooked mate" (Cha de mate) - Yerba mate is prepared like coffee or cocoa. In boiling water poured Yerba mate-the tea leaves at the rate of about 50 grams of tea for 1 liter of water. Boil for a minute or two, then remove from heat and using a strainer pour it into cups or Calabash. Boiled Yerba mate is often drunk with sugar.

2. "Sweet mate" (mate Dolce) - Yerba mate, which is prepared with sugar or honey. The sugar in powder form may initially be poured into a Calabash with a dry welding (or on the bottom put a spoon of honey) and then added hot water.

3. "Cold mate" (Terere) - prepared like the classic "bitter" mate, just filled with cold water and insist a little longer (sometimes up to an hour). Cold Yerba mate is often added to ice, sugar, orange, grapefruit or lemon juice, mint leaves, etc.

The water temperature should be 95 to 97 degrees, it is after the kettle boils - to wait for 1.5-2.5 minutes.. to 1 teaspoon of mate in a Cup (standard).

In Paraguay, the Calabash (pumpkin vessel for Yerba mate) leaves are stuffed to the eyeballs and constantly pouring boiling water, SIP through the bombilla (a metal or cane straw) throughout the day. When the taste ceases to meet - changing the sheets in the vessel.
I brewed a tablespoon of leaves in the Calabash with a volume of approximately 150 ml. after Drinking, once again pour boiling water. After the second welding - change the sheets.

Actually, mate is not tea. It prokopeva pour water with a temperature just over 70 degrees Celsius, but not more than 80. It can not be boiling water to brew, because it loses a lot of useful properties. Insist for about 20 minutes. Drinking from cups or pots. To taste add honey. Mate a very well toned body.
