THIS SET INCLUDES
1 Handcrafted "Galleta" Style Mate Gourd
1 Handcrafted "Leaves" Alpaca Silver Bombilla Straw
- 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 & BOMBILLA
BOMBILLA : 6.1" (inches) Length
MATE GOURD : 4.72" (inches) High / 4.72" (inches) Width
GOURD'S CAPACITY: Will hold aprox 2oz of dried Yerba.
Each mate gourd / cup should be filled with Yerba a little over 2/3 of it's capacity. The measure showing above in bold is based on this suggestion. Remember to leave a slight slope of dry yerba 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.
