Hand crafted dried gourds are the popular vessel in South American countries for holding Yerba Mate’, a caffeinated South American herb. The loose leaves are placed in the vessel, hot water is added, and the beverage is sipped throughout the day using a Bombilla, the metal straw which has a perforated bulb at the end and serves to prevent the leaves from coming through the straw. More water can be added to the same leaves throughout the day.
We have an assortment of Gourds and Bombillas, priced separately. When both a gourd and Bombilla are purchased, receive a free 2 oz pack of Yerba Mate’.
