GET THIS BEAUTIFUL & UNIQUE YERBA MATE TEA COMBO AT A GREAT PRICE!
BOMBILLA’S LENGTH: 6.3″ inches (16 cm)
GOURD´S CAPACITY: Will hold aprox 2oz 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 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 1.10″ bags 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. If this is your first time dealing with mate gourds, we strongly suggest you read this article.
We also recommend this this one in case you have never brewed your yerba the traditional way. This is important because by brewing your mate the traditional way you will maximize your intake of all the vitamins and minerals which are present on the mate tea.

Yerba mate, often referred to as “the drink of the gods,” is derived from the leaves of the Ilex paraguariensis plant, native to the subtropical regions of South America.
Known for its abundant health benefits, including an energy boost, improved mental focus, and a wealth of antioxidants, yerba mate tea has gained popularity as a stimulating alternative to coffee and tea.
Keep in mind that personal preference is the ultimate guiding principle in the world of yerba mate. Each brand boasts its unique characteristics, such as the region of cultivation, the drying process, and the specific blend of leaves, twigs and dust. The flavor profiles can range from grassy and mild to bold and smoky, offering something to suit every palate.
Also, factors such as the temperature of the water, the gourd or cup used, and even the social aspect of sharing mate with friends all play a role in how you perceive this cherished beverage.
So, bottom line is Yerba mate is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed in many different ways, from traditional unflavored varieties to flavored blends and mixes with natural herbs. Whether you prefer a bold, earthy flavor or a sweeter, more balanced taste, there is a variety out there for you.
It is fun to experiment!
