THIS SET INCLUDES
1 Alpaca Silver metal straw
1 Handcrafted "Galleta" style Mate Gourd - Awesome carving!
- Argentine gauchos (natives) called this type of gourds "galleta" because they look flat and round like the
country crackers they use to eat. They are not easy to find nowadays
UNIQUE "GALLETA" STYLE YERBA MATE GOURD
This COLLECTABLE GOURD has an original design in alpaca silver.
It shows a magnificently carved MBURUCUYA FLOWER. The name of this flower means passion flower in native lenguage.
BOMBILLA : 7.87" (inches) Length
MATE GOURD : 5.51" (inches) High / 5.12" (inches) Width
Each mate gourd / cup should be filled with Yerba a little over 2/3 of it's capacity. Remember to leave a slight slope and insert the bombilla at the bottom of the slope. Once the bombilla is in place, you are ready to pour the water on that side of the gourd (remember not to let your water boil) for each serving. The measure showing above in bold is based on this suggestion.
