Not only it is good to have some mate tea during any sort of trek or adventure, but it is advisable to leave the things required to prepare it in expedition stashes or caches as well.

Whenever you are exploring any sort of region you should assume more often than not that you will return on later years and so perhaps it would be advisable to leave strategically located stashes of provisions and items that you may need. Normally, food, some tools, survival kits, and perhaps firearms are left in such stashes for explorers that will return one, two or more years later. But in order to make life of those future explorers easier, you may also leave some goodies and surprises as well, and they will certainly appreciate it. moreover: You may likely be the one who will thank your own foresight.

Among all those items that may fall among the "goodies" category you can include a complete mate tea kit, including a couple of bombillas, a mate vessel or mug, a kettle and perhaps even the mate leaves or yerba.

If you include this product, make sure that you know how to conserve it well, because moisture and air humidity could affect it over time much like coffee beans or tea leaves. Believe us: It is worth to leave such items in a cache or stash; months or years later, as you return, you will be very pleased with the perspective of an easily prepared hot infusion of mate.


If the weather is bad while you prepare your mate, you could use another piece of gear of the gauchos: The poncho.

For its best possible conservation, don't just throw into the cache your mate kit along with anything else; put it into a double plastic bag or inside some sort of waterproof container, so that moisture won't reach it. Imagine if some tools like a screwdriver, hatchet, etc, catch rust during the long period between visits, and if that rust gets carried by moisture to your mate gear, ruining it... it would be a shame. The same applies to any other sort of food that you may leave there.

Once you open your cache like a time capsule after a couple of months or year, make sure to boil all gastronomic implements before using them because over time they will certainly become dirty and will need disinfection. This includes your mate kit as well as jars, mugs, frying pans, forks, knifes, spoons or anything else that will be used for food consumption or preparation.
