BOMBILLA — YERBA MATÉ STRAINER STRAW
Our stainless steel bombilla (bom-BEE-yah) takes inspiration from the traditional yerba maté drinking method. While a yerba maté strainer straw is traditionally made from hollowed-out cane, The Tea Centre makes ours using food-grade stainless steel. This is to ensure the integrity of the straw, guaranteeing a perfect sip every time! Fun fact? The traditional name bombilla means “little pump” in Spanish!
This South American tea accessory functions as both a straw and strainer, and won’t tarnish with age. Furthermore, the strainer at the bottom of the straw has fine holes, which ensures that only tea comes through the tube when taking a sip! Its presence also negates the need to use an infuser in your gourd or teacup. This makes disposing of your yerba maté loose leaf easier after the infusion process.
