ONLY ONE in STOCK!
YERBA MATE GOURD DIMENSIONS : 3.54" / 9 (cm) H / 3.93" / 10 (cm) W
GOURD´S CAPACITY : will hold 2.5oz of dried loos 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 2.5oz 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.
BOMBILLA / STRAW LENGTH : 6.29" / 16 cm
