Yerba Mate - how do I prepare it?

Val G | Aug 19, 2000 07:27 PM

My husband brought a sack of yerba mate from Argentina. We have a gourd to mix it in, and a special strainer-straw to sip through.

Does anyone know the best way to prepare this? Is it an after-dinner drink? The gourd smells smokey inside. I assume the gourd should be rinsed, but not washed with soap.
