Yerba Mate gourds made of glass are for the millenials and those looking for a properly shapped pure vessel.
The mate cup's unique shape compresses the yerba mate tea in order to create suction for nutrient extraction. Using this specially shaped mate gourd is the secret to preserving the high level of nutrients and maximizing the benefits of yerba mate. A glass cup does not provide the proper shape to extract the nutrients, but special yerba mate glass cups do have the correct shape!
Artisans create these for us to enjoy!
