Double-filter steel coiled yerba-mate bombilla
BACK TO ROOTS
Contemporary kitchenware is all about choice: you may go for a French press or coffee maker when infusing you teas or herbs. Furthermore, you are free steeping either loose-leaf mate or the one in sachets straight inside the cup. All these tools may be good-to-have in the kitchen, but there is one that does bring a complete reconsideration of your drinking experience – a traditional Argentinian mate straw, a bombilla.
You may like the intellectual challenge of an experiment and the novice of another modern tea ware item coming from a tempting fantasy of an engineer geek, but a bombilla fetches back a hundred-year practice and the roots of the rituals of communication, socializing and sharing over a drink.
WHEN TRADITION MEETS MODERN DESIGN
The coil or spring bombilla resembles well the original natural bamboo-straw and, therefore, combines the art of the past and smart modern design.
The straw is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel in a shape of a thin cylinder, slightly curved at the top for convenience. There are slight openings around the entire coil, small enough to keep out most yerba and dregs. The coil is removable. All you have to do is unhinge the bottom part and move it up the bombilla. This allows for really easy cleaning. The super-thin spout on the other end provides for easy sipping adding some resistance with every new circle – all to appreciate the taste more.
A bombilla-straw, traditionally employed to sip yerba-mate from calabash gourds, can be successfully used to enjoy all sorts of loose teas and herbal infusions from any vessel at hand. Furthermore, a bombilla is a perfect substitution for a tea-strainer. When herbs are left to float unrestricted in hot water they release more of the important nutrients and antioxidants.
Finally, the slight curve of the straw allows you to look forward while drinking and thereby lose no eye-contact with the people around you.
