This is a high quality wooden mate gourd that will last for years if treated correctly. It is made from algarrobo wood from the province of Salta in Northern Argentina. 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.
