THIS SPECIAL INCLUDES
1 One of a Kind Handcrafted "Indian Pattern" Yerba Mate Gourd
1 Spoon Style HQ Stainless Steel bombilla/straw
1 Bag of "KRAUS" Gaucho - High Quality - Unsmoked - 1.10" Pounds / 0.50 Kilo
BOMBILLA / STRAW: 7.08" (inches) - 18 (cm) in Length
MATE GOURD: 3.1" (inches) - 8 (cm) High / 3.54" (inches) - 9 (cm) Width
VOLUME : Will hold aprox 1.8 - 2oz of 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 1.8-2oz 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.
