Yerba Mate Gourd and Bombilla


Elevate your yerba mate experience with an authentic gourd and bombilla (straw).


Yerba Mate Gourd and Bombilla

Yerba Mate Gourd and Bombilla elevate your yerba mate sipping experience. Made with actual gourds and hand crafted in Argentina. You can think of each gourd as a piece of art! You’ll notice your gourd may still have seeds in it. This is because these gourds still require you to cure them. You do this by pouring near boiling water into them and allowing it to sit for about 5 minutes. Pour the water out, scrape the seeds and pulp out. Your gourd is now cured.

To avoid molding in your gourd, empty all liquid and spent leaves when you are done. Dry the inside of your gourd with a paper towel, and leave in a well ventilated area.

The 3 stripe gourd uses Alpaca silver, which is similar to stainless steel.

To use your gourd, add 2-5TB of yerba mate, add your bombilla, then pour your water into your gourd. The water should be under boiling (175-185 degrees). Honey can be added if you find it too bitter. Enjoy!

I've been going to Lake Missoula Tea Company for years, and recently have had the privilege of putting some of their tea in my store. The quality of the tea is fantastic, and the blends are delightful. I have also attended one of their tasting / learning events and it was great. I highly recommend their downtown store for meeting with friends, family or even just for a nice place to go and have a cup of perfectly brewed tea.

What a wonderful shop! I've been in with my whole family a few times and it's just such a treat smelling teas, and learning new things. The lady behind the counter was extremely helpful for us newbies and she is so knowledgeable. During our last visit we tried the tea service and spent some time just enjoying cups of tea. The whole experience was a pleasure. 100% this is the best place to get tea in Missoula, and if you don't know anything about tea it's even better!

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories

We are major tea snobs and I was absolutely delighted by this store. There are the usual suspects as well as shelves of unique, hand-picked teas. Highly recommend the Golden Snail :) It was really special being able to try whatever tea I wanted before buying. I'm looking forward to subscribing to their tea club. I would love to come back: everything was delicious.

Amazing tea! Beyond my expectations and well worth the stop! Delightful service and amazing blends! If you are in the area I would highly recognize them. I will be ordering blends online-they are so good!
