It is amazing that I have been back from Brazil for 6 or 7 weeks and have not opened chimarrao (mate) tea or used the gourd that was a lovely gift from Paulo on the last day of the symposium. The full story about how and why is here.
Anyway - I am not sure that my gourd is quite ready to use - does it need to be cured? The water is fizzing when I pour it into the gourd. Can someone help me?
It is rather shameful that my first cup was in a white china mug - just not right at all!
