As the mate gourd is passed around the circle, a sense of connection emerges. The first step of the ceremony is the preparation of the gourd. Typically, the cebador/a (mate server) prepares mate for a friend or a group of friends. The cebador/a drinks the first one or two gourd-fulls, testing the water to ensure that only a smooth running mate is shared. Then the gourd is refilled with water and passed counter-clockwise with the bombilla (straw-filter) facing the recipient. Each person drinks the entire gourd: you share the vessel, not the liquid. The recipient of the gourd has as much time as needed to finish the gourd-full. After the last few sips of the mate are gone, the gourd is returned with the bombilla facing the cebador/a. The gourd is refilled with hot water and follows around the circle, continuing in this fashion until the mate is lavado (flat). If someone has had enough mate, they simply say gracias (thank you) to indicate that they are finished. Certified organic by: CCOF. Contains the caffeine equivalent of 3/4 cup of coffee per serving.
