This is a very useful instructional video on how to prepare mate tea. To prepare mate tea you need a mate straw as you see on the video. You also need mate cups and mate tea powder. First you need to have almost boiling water in a kettle. Now you have to put about half a mate cup of mate tea into mate cup. You can close your palm and invert the cup so that the unwanted tea power will stick to your palm. Now you can pour the water into the mate cup from the kettle. Now you can insert the straw into the cup. Mate tea is now ready and you can drink it.
