Commonly considered the first bombilla to be developed in the history of yerba mate, this bamboo bombilla is carefully handcrafted to be versatile in drinking your yerba mate. Use with one of our gourds, or with your cup, mug or thermos of choice.
What is Bombilla?
Yerba Mate (erva mate) tea is traditionally served with a bamboo or metal straw from a shared hollowed out gourd. This drinking straw is called a bombilla in Latin American Spanish and a bomba in Portuguese. The bombilla (also known as a tea straw or filter straw) acts as a strainer in addition to a drinking straw. The submerged end has small holes on both sides that allow your mate tea infusion to pass through, but blocks the loose yerba mate herb that fills the mate gourd.
