This is a high quality wooden mate gourd that will last for years if treated correctly. It is made from algarrobo wood and is covered with a metal sheath on the base, and a metal lip that helps to protect the gourd. Algarrobo is also known as the carob tree a wood used as a natural sweetener. Mate cups made of algarrobo are popular because this fragrant, sweet wood contributes to the flavour of the yerba. While using the gourd a discolouration of the wood takes place. This is a natural process which occurs through the absorption of the tea.
