Before you start using your mate gourd, we recommend curing it.
The curing process is very easy.
First, fill the cup with mate herb and add hot water.
Once this is done, let stand for 24 hours. After that, remove the herbs with a spoon and scrape the interior walls of the gourd a little.
After that, the mate gourd will be ready to use.
Keep in mind that due to the absorption of the mate herb, it is common for green spots to appear inside the gourd after curing.
