What Is Smoked Yerba Maté

Smoked yerba maté refers to the method of drying the plant cut and leaf cut of the yerba maté plant at harvest. This method of drying the leaves is old and more "traditional" stated by some of the first Europeans to visit N. Argentina.

What Is Unsmoked Yerba Maté

Unsmoked yerba maté refers to the method of drying the plant cut and leaf cut of the harvested yerba maté. Unsmoked yerba maté is dried using a "tumble" technique and hot dry air blown on the leaves.

What Is A Gourd

The traditional gourd or "Maté" is used for drinking yerba maté and is grown from various types of plants and trees. Namely from the squash family. In Argentina and other heavily consuming yerba maté counties the gourd has taken on the role of a traditional drinking vassal. The gourd or "Maté" is the oldest known devise for consuming yerba maté.    

What Is A Bombilla

The Bombilla (bom-bee-ah) is a traditional straw with a spring or whole like filter on the opposing end of the drinking tip. The Bombilla is used traditionally to drink yerba maté tea with a plant gourd.

The purpose of this device is to allow the individual to drink yerba maté tea in the traditional South American style.
