Drink Yerba Maté the traditional way with an authentic gourd & bombilla!
The "Bombilla" (pronounced 'bombee-ya') or "Bomba" is a drinking straw made of bamboo or metal, with filtering holes at the bottom to strain out the leaves.
The Yerba Maté gourd, known as, calabaza, cuia or porongo, is made from the fruit of a gourd vine (Iagenaria vulgaris, cucurbitaceous family).
Please expect slight variations in design, colour, shape and size.
These gourds are natural, hand made products from Argentina. As such, both on the inside, and on the outside the gourd may show dark brown or grey stains that characterize the plant. These should not be seen as deformities or blemishes, but rather as natural markings.
The gourd is not a "ready to use" item. It must be cured before first time use to ensure it lasts for a long time and contributes to an enjoyable experience drinking yerba maté. Please follow the instructions in Caring for your gourd.
