**Yerba Mate and its history:
The origin of the yerba mate dates back to the Guarani natives, they used their leaves as a drink, an object of adoration and exchange of currency with other peoples.
During the long trips through the jungle, the conquerors noticed that the Guarani had greater resistance after drinking this sacred drink.
"Caá" in the Guaraní language means yerba, but it also means plant and jungle. For the guaraní, the yerba mate tree is a gift from the gods.
The habit of mate has not changed since ancient times and during five centuries of history, taking root and extending to distant places.
Nowadays, mate is taken in Uruguay, Bolivia, southern Brazil, Paraguay and in all Argentine houses. It is also used as a refreshing drink, breakfast with mate every morning and / or refreshments with mate every afternoon.
Mate is part of the Argentine culture. Taking Mate with friends and loved ones is the perfect excuse to share meetings and beautiful moments.
This mate was made especially with dedication, using a spontaneous yet careful creation process. Keep it as a special gift to yourself, or share it with a loved one who Yerba Mate lover or healthy drink enthusiasts.
★ INFO and Frequently asked questions ★
•••Cleaning and care of Mates
My Mates are protected with waterproofing, and varnish. The benefit of waterproofing is that the paint does not skip and can get wet.
As it is a natural "Algarrobo" wood product, I recommend cleaning them with the least amount of water and not using a dishwasher or microwave.
It is important that after using the mate remove the grass and wash it without rubbing it only with hot water and dry it with kitchen paper, to absorb moisture well
Then dry it with a cloth very well and let it finish drying with the opening down. Leaving the weed moist in the mate without using it makes the wood taste ugly and ruin.
These cares will extend the life of your Mate.
