We are a development-stage company formed to create special equipment for drinking mate tea – Kalabas.
We suppose that mate tea is one of the most useful drinks in the world. That requires special equipment for use - Kalabas and Bombilla. Now mate is acquiring more and more fans.
Official research scientists say that mate tea contains practically all the vitamins and substances necessary for the maintenance of normal human life. There is resin fiber, volatile oil, tannin, which is found in many plant substances. Besides - carotene, group A, C, E, B1, B2 vitamins, vitamin B- complex group in a higher concentration than the well-known honey bees’ uterus, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, manganese, silicon, phosphate, sulfur, hydrochloric acid, chlorophyll, choline, inositol. In its conclusions, the scientists pointed out that a plant with so many essential and vital nutrients - extremely rare in nature.
We produce kalabas for drinking mate tea. There are many options for the production and we choose to use wood. Kalabas (calabash) - a traditional vessel for drinking yerba mate. In ancient times, Indians kalabas was manufactured from wood gourd. Later, they began to produce vessels of wood, fret, iron framing. The second mandatory attribute - Bombilla. Bombilla previously made of thin hollow trunks of plants. Today it is a whole industry, they are made of metal (stainless steel), silver. The top of the tube is slightly flat mouthpiece, which may be gold-plated or silver, and at the bottom - with a special filter. Bombilla may be straight or slightly curved.
We are going to use wood and aluminum in the production of kalabas. This material will last longer, and it has become more popular than the pumpkin, which often cracks. Therefore, we will use wood and aluminum.
