6 steps to achieve a perfect matte

Do you want to be the star primer of your group? I followed these steps.


As in everything else, Argentines also do not agree on how to prepare the most ours  infusion  of all: mate. What is sure is that, whoever baits some rich mattes, is not an impromptu. If you want to be the star primer of your group, we leave you the formula to primer the perfect mate, step by step. Put it into practice and you're going to see how your mattes get all the compliments.


  1. Fill three-quarters of the mate.
  2. Shake by covering the mouth of the mate with the palm of your hand.
  3. Leave all the yerba on one side of the container so that, when stopping it, it is placed obliquely.
  4. Take a stream of cold or warm water on the part of the mate where there is less weed. Once the  yerba  swell, place the  bulb  there.
  5. Bait the mate by pouring the water as close as possible to the bulb to avoid wetting all the yerba. In this way, it will retain its taste longer. (This is a great tip for mattes to take longer to wash.
  6. Do not move the bulb once the matte starts, to prevent it from covering and so that the dry yerba does not get wet.
