Gauchos are famous South American horsemen most well-associated with Argentina and Uruguay. Though similar to North American cowboys, they were also distinct in several ways. For example, instead of six-shooters, gauchos carried facóns, large knives that they would tuck into their sashes. They also used bolas (cords with weighted ends) in addition to lassos when rounded up or moving cattle. Finally, their drink of preference was actually a tea: yerba mate (pronounced “mah-tay”). Traditionally enjoyed in cups packed with leaves, the liquid was enjoyed through a filtered metal straw and often passed from person to person.

Tried this tea yesterday in my Breville Tea Maker and the carafe still smells like cinnamon and clove. Does anyone have any suggestions on cleaning this thing?
