Why should you use a Bombilla StrainerStraw for your medicinal herbs and tea preparations?
Tradition. Centuries ago the Guarani Indians of Paraguay received bombillas from the Incas in exchange for sharing their knowledge of herbal medicine. The bombilla was an important technological advance at the time and artists made many beautiful ones with silver, gold and precious jewels.
Health Benefits. The bombilla delivers more of the healing benefits of your herbal preparation because the herbs continue to steep while you drink and the sucking action causes more of the nutrients to be absorbed directly through the lining in the mouth and assimilated immediately into the bloodstream.
Economics. With the Bombilla StrainerStraw you save money by purchasing loose tea instead of more expensive tea bags. The Wisdom of the Ancients Bombilla StrainerStraw is a good investment that will last for many years.
Pleasure. There are few finer pleasures in the tea experience than enjoying Wisdom of the Ancients YerbaMate or YerbaMate Royale with Stevia through a Bombilla StrainerStraw.
Drink with a friend and share the Wisdom!
The Bombilla StrainerStraw is the traditional method of drinking YerbaMate and other healthy herbal beverages in Paraguay, Argentina and other parts of South America.
Put the appropriate amount of loose herbs into a mug or a traditional gourd and then fill with water. After steeping, place your Bombilla StrainerStraw directly into the herbs until the tip hits the bottom of the mug. Sip your tea directly through the straw.
After consuming your first round of tea, you can refill your mug with water using the same herbs again. In Paraguay the Guarani Indians refill their gourds with water many times, maximizing the healing benefits of their herbs thanks to the Bombilla StrainerStraw.
Imported from Paraguay, the Bombilla StrainerStraw is made from brass coated in stainless steel.
iHerb Customer Reviews
well i'm that kind of girl who always too lazy to put those tea leaves into a teapot and wait it brew then to my teacup. Now this thing solves my problem, I'm using it everyday...letting tea leaves brew freely in your cup and this strainerstraw to drink your tea. Fantastic. BUT... you gotta be careful, it's made of stainless steel, just make sure it's not too hot for you to drink, maybe wait for like 5 mins, then it's good to go. I think i can give up buying tea bags! Loose tea is always cheaper!!!!! Sometimes i even use it drink hot coffee, as using straw wont stain my teeth directly :P That's my thought.
There's no need to spend a lot of money on a bombilla when you can buy this Wisdom Natural. It works great, and cleans easy. I don't ever get anything sucked through except tea, which is a big plus.

I loved it for loose tea and so did my kids. It stays stainless and beautiful and keeps drinking tea a joy.
Makes loose teas easy, but does get hot

A great little device. Since it is metal, you do have to be cautous with the conduction of heat from beverages. Very convenient.

if you use loose leaf teas, then you probably want this or already have one. it is a definite must for those of us who do not want to boil the leaves in a teapot, usually because it is too much work. i had to have dental work done, and found myself drinking out of this straw even for things that did not require any filtration. it happened outta habit, and was responsible for helping to keep my front teeth white. since it is metal, and metal is a conductor of energy, be careful when sipping hot fluids as it can burn your lips. the stains that accumulate on the straw can be taken off with any natural based, oxygen cleaner.
