Yerba Mate is the national drink of Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Brazil where it is consumed 6 to 1 over coffee! In Argentina, over 90% of the people drink yerba mate using a traditional hollowed out gourd and “bombilla” (which is a special straw that keeps the stems, leaves and particles out of your brew).

In South America, Tomando mate (drinking mate) is a symbol of friendship and hospitality. Traditionally, it is served and shared as a symbol of community and peace; and is passed from hand to hand around a circle while appreciating the communal experience, stories are told, ideas are shared. Similar to North America’s peace pipe ceremonies- in which a tobacco pipe offered and smoked as a token of peace among North American Indians.

Very beautiful Yerba Gourd. -1 star because there were some suspicious looking "mold" spots. At least it looked like mold. Did the best I could to wash and scape it out without damaging the product. All in all, I love using this for my Organic Green Mate. Love it
