The Karma ceramic gourd comes without a Bombilla (Metal Yerba Mate Straw) but does come with free shipping (an $8.95 value).
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.
This special edition mate gourd includes a side hole to hold the metal mate straw (Bombilla) in place. Enjoy this as a go to mug of your own or as a special gift.
The Yerba Mate mug is approximately 3 inches high and 2.5 inches wide although the actual opening is slightly narrower as it curves inward.
These are made from lead-free material and are dishwasher safe (although the colors may retain vibrancy by being hand washed only. It’s one of those debates, you know?).
Each ceramic gourd starts with the same 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. I am happy to respond to any questions you might have before or after ordering.
