- Wooden Cup Palo Santo 170 - 220 ml - Bombilla Removable Filter 14 CM - Wooden Scoop
Palo Santo is a hardwood native to the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. Mate cups made of Palo Santo are popular because this fragrant wood contributes to the flavour, especially when used over time. This palo santo mate cup is made from extra thick wood, reducing the risk of splitting – a substantial piece. Wrapped in aliminium this mate is sleek and stylish.
This wood is especially fragile, and as such should be cured to prevent splitting. To cure a palo santo mate, you should rub oil or butter on the inside walls. Add yerba mate leave and a small amount of water – enough to wet the leaves only not too much – and leave for a day. This process seals the pores and increases the life of the mate.
