Peculiarities of glass mates
The mate is an instrument specially designed to prepare and drink one of Argentina's traditional beverages, which is obtained from the yerba of the same name
Until recently, they were essentially made from pumpkin, whose fruit received a special cut in its crown, and then the pulp was extracted and left to dry. Later, they were made from wood and other materials, until the time of the glass or crystal mate: one of the most appropriate, according to experts on the subject
This type of gourds have very special characteristics
- They keep the original flavor of the drink
Unlike other types of mate, the glass mate does not alter the original flavor of the drink. Although many people prefer the woody or fruity touch that wooden or pumpkin gourds can offer, the truth is that with a glass mate the experience of drinking the beverage is more real.

Tips for buying glass gourds
To buy a glass mate, it is essential to check two things
- Its resistance
Although it is a delicate material, at the same time it becomes a product that lasts over time, so it is important to choose one that adapts to an equally stable taste and also has additional protection systems, as is the case of models that come lined in aluminum or leather
This will depend on personal taste, but remember that a good mateada depends largely on the size of the utensil to make it comfortably and, if it is efficient, so much the better

Glass mates are easy to maintain, easy to wash and, in essence, prevent the accumulation of liquids that cause the proliferation of fungi and bacteria
- Last over time
Barring any mishap related to a fall, glass mates are very resistant over time because, as mentioned above, they do not accumulate fungus or bacteria, they wash very easily and if they are covered with aluminum or leather like many of the models available at Pampa Drugstore, they can even be resistant to slight falls

As we have already mentioned, you only need to buy your glass mate to start using it.
- They do not alter the taste, smell or pigmentation of the beverage
This is something that ultimately turns out to be the most important thing of all and that differentiates the glass mate from other utensils created for the same purpose.
