THIS SPECIAL INCLUDES:
1 Dark Brown (no dyes were used) Handcrafted Alpaca Silver Yerba Mate Gourd
1 Stainless Steel metal bombilla/straw
1.10" Pounds / 0.50 Kilo bag of "Kraus" Unsmoked Organic Certified - High Quality
BOMBILLA / STRAW : 6.3" (inches) - 16 (cm) in Length
MATE GOURD : 3.15" (inches) - 8 (cm) High / 3.54" (inches) - 9 (cm) Width
GOURD'S CAPACITY: Will hold aprox 1.6-1.8oz of dried loose Yerba (2/3 of full capacity).
Given the fact that a mate drinker should fill 2/3 of any recipient with loose dried yerba, this 1.6-1.8oz measure shown in bold above is based on this traditional rule.
You can also have an idea of size if you compare them with the the 1.10" yerba mate bag shown in the pictures. A typical 1.10" yerba bag is aprox 100 mm x 70 mm x 170 mm (length x depth x height), a little bit smaller than a standard brick.
When you fill your gourd, remember to leave a slight slope at the bottom. This is where you insert the bombilla before you carefully pour the water (not boiling) for each serving cycle.
