yerba mate gourd


The gourd is traditionally made out of the fruit of a gourd vine (Lagenaria Vulgaris, cucurbitaceous family). Since it is a naturally product every single one has an individual shape and colour.

Before using it is highly recommended to cure your gourd first with these simple steps:

  1. Remove debris from inside the cup, if there is any.
  2. Fill the mate gourd with used yerba leaves (If you don't have used yerba leaves, you can soak some fresh yerba in water and use that)
  3. Let the gourd sit filled for a day.

Make sure to clean your gourd after usage, let air dry that will prolong the life of your gourd.
