This traditional hand-produced mate gourd inclues a perforated straw--a bombilla--that acts as a light filter. Mate gourds and bombillas are the traditional way for drinking Mate. According to mate drinkers, a properly cured and seasoned gourd enhances the flavor of the mate tea. A perfect compliment to our selection of Mate Teas including our Organic Citron Mate.
Our Gourds are hand made and naturally vary in size and shape and design. You will need to "cure" the Mate Gourd before using it for the first time. Styles vary.
