THIS SPECIAL YERBA MATE KIT INCLUDES:
1 "Flower & Leaves" Handcrafted Yerba Mate Gourd
1 Handcrafted bamboo bombilla/straw (includes cloth filter & cleaner)
1.10" Pounds / 0.50 Kilo bag of "Paula Witcowski" Yerba Mate Organic - High Quality
BOMBILLA / STRAW : 7.5" (inches) - 19 (cm) in Length
MATE GOURD : 3.54" (inches) - 9 (cm) Height / 3.54" (inches) - 9 (cm) Width
GOURD'S CAPACITY: Will hold aprox 2-2.20oz 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 2-2.20oz 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.
