If you like drinking Yerba Mate tea from a gourd but like being able to clean it then you will love this ceramic mate gourd. It fits the hand nicely while the curve holds the Yerba Mate much like a regular gourd. This makes it easier to let it steep in the initial cooler water before adding in successive amounts of hot water.
The Yerba Mate ceramic mug is approximately 3 inches high and 2 inches wide. It holds about 12 Oz. of liquid. These are made from lead-free material and are dishwasher safe.
Each ceramic gourd starts with the same red base and then a secondary glaze creates a unique swirl of color along the inner and sides of the mug. Some variation is expected with most ceramic pieces and these are no different.
This version of the ceramic mate gourd comes with a 5.5″ Bombilla (Metal Yerba Mate Straw) that includes a removable end making the metal straw easier to clean.
I am happy to respond to any questions you might have before or after ordering.
