Weight1 Unit

Ancient Purity Presents The Bombilla Hot Drinking Straw. We love these authentic Bombillas! I drink Pau D'arco Tea with it regularly. Handcrafted in Argentina the traditional way, Bombillas were used by Gauchos while travelling on the Pampas. Gauchos were the nomadic horsemen and cowhands of the Argentinian and Uruguayan Pampas (grasslands), who flourished from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century and have remained a folk hero similar to cowboys in the USA. The numbers of gauchos have declined over the last several decades, yet they are still found throughout Argentina and continue to play a vital role in its cultural and economic life, and are even seen as the country's national symbol. These Bombillas are perfect for our range of herbal teas such as Pine Needles Tea, Gumby Gumby Tea and Californian Poppy, just to name a few. Bombillas last a lifetime if looked after. You should clean them carefully. Each Bombilla is uniquely made, never are two the same. The Bombillas are created from Cane. So, these Straws are Durable, Eco, Sustainable and very Cool! This small and smart ancient device is clearly the most healthful, convenient, and effective way devised for sipping herbal teas. When herbs are left floating unrestricted in hot water they’ll release more of the pivotal antioxidants and nutrients. Cared for these incredible and well crafted Straws will last forever.

Q: I saw iron Bombillas online before. Isn't iron better than cane?
A: We recommend not buying tin or iron Bombillas because they absorb and transfer heat. Furthermore, some of these are covered with a copper cyanide plating and nickel plating. With time, they start to break up and are ingested, altering the taste of your drink but also being harmful.

Q: Why drinking yerba mate with a straw?
A: The filter straw was created centuries ago exclusively for the consumption of yerba mate. This unique straw, with a filter at the end, allows you to sip the mate without having any leaves coming up to your mouth. Did you know that it is very important not to move the Bombilla?
