History of the bombilla

Centuries ago, the Guarani natives of Paraguay received bombillas from the Incas in exchange for sharing their knowledge of herbal medicine. The bombilla was an important technological advancement at the time, and artists made many beautiful ones with silver, gold and precious jewels.

Using Your Bombilla

There are few finer pleasures in the tea experience than enjoying Wisdom of the Ancients® Yerba Maté or Yerba Maté Royale® with stevia through a Bombilla StrainerStraw™.

Simply prepare your herbal blend, place the bombilla into the herbs collected at the bottom of the mug and sip. Do not stir herbs.

The Bombilla StrainerStraw™ is made from stainless steel plated brass.
