Types of yerba mate cups

There's a wide array of mate cups available for purchase. Here are some of the most popular types:

  • Mate Gourd or mate de calabaza: Made from dried and hollowed calabash fruit, these cups are famed for intensifying the flavor of your mate.
  • Inox Steel mate cup: Excellent for maintaining the temperature of your drink, hot or cold, and they are very practical for travel due to their ease of cleaning.
  • Glass: Glass yerba mate tea cups are friendly for beginners.
  • Wood mate gourd: Can be made from algarrobo (carob tree) or palo santo wood.
  • Ceramic: A budget-friendly option for your first yerba mate cup.

Sizes of mate cups: Which one should you choose?

Mate cups vary not only in shape but also in size and capacity. In Argentina, where sharing the mate gourd is a tradition, smaller sizes are popular for quicker passing around of the yerba mate cup.

The size you should choose depends on your usage and preference. Generally, a larger mate tea cup (200-300 ml) holds more yerba mate, allowing for longer drinking sessions.

A medium-sized mate cup, around 130-180 ml, will use up the yerba mate more quickly but requires less quantity, making it more suitable for quick drinks or when you only wish for a few sips.
