- Gourd holds approximately 150-200ml of liquid
Yerba maté ("yer-bah mah-tay") can be brewed in a French-press or tea pot, but as our South American amigos know, the best way to drink it is as a loose-leaf tea brewed strong, in a maté gourd and sipped using a special stainless-steel tea straw, called a bombilla (pronounced "bom - bee - ya"). You can learn more about the traditional preparation of mate in our videos. We hope that all South Africans will have the opportunity to participate in a maté "ronda" (circle) on day. Join us and 150 million people around the world that enjoy this healthy habit every day.
