Yerba mate tea should be brewed for at least 3 minutes. Take care to see that you do not brew the tea any longer than 5 minutes, even if you feel like having a strong tea. This is because when you brew the Yerba mate tea longer than 3 minutes, the tea becomes very bitter. Traditionally, the tea leaves are soaked in some cold water until the water has been completely absorbed by the leaves. Then, hot water is poured over the water soaked leaves and the tea is immediately drunk.
