Bamboo Bombilla

By: ppat of Elkhart, IN

Nice bamboo straws but rather small diameter compared to my last one. Recieved them in quick order and good condition.

Too thin to use

By: Anonymous of Washington/DC

I have a steel bombilla at home that I like quite a bit, but I wanted to have a wooden one also. However, this bamboo bombilla is incredibly thin. The diameter of the hollow space is about 3 millimeters in diameter, and the bombilla itself is thinner than a pencil. It still works, but it requires a lot of force to suck the water up. My teeth hurt from sucking just from using it once. I decided to purchase another wooden bombilla from EcoTeas, and it's really thick and not at all hard to suck up water with. The EcoTeas one has a hollow space of about 5-6 millimeters in diameter, and is thicker than a pencil. However, it's worth mentioning that the Guayaki customer service was really helpful, and they offered to give me a steel bombilla for free because of my dissatisfaction. The design is quite nice also, and it's possible that my teeth are just more sensitive than most. The extra millimeter or two made the difference for me, but might be insignificant for you. That's why I gave it a 3 out of 5.

Nice Feel, but gets clogged

By: Anonymous of Seattle, WA

I really like the feel of the bamboo bombilla- nice texture and it doesn't get too hot on the lips if you are drinking hot liquid. However, I find that it sometimes get clogged if you are drinking loose leaf mate

Great Bombilla

By: Nancy Taft of Rochester, NY

Love the bamboo. I drink my tea outside in the sun sometimes and I thought the other bombillas might get hot. The bamboo one is perfect.

Bombilla

By: Issis of Ventura/California

I really love these Straws. Not only are they good for the environment by reducing waste production, but you get that "feel good feeling" that someone actually made this by hand! I prefer the bombillas from Guayaki compared to others because the smallest diameter can fit on the mouth part of my lid for my travel Mug!

holes too small

By: russell of carmichaels PA

the bamboo bombilla has holes that are too small on it. it always plugged up and when its not you have to suck extemely hard to get a liqued into it. the metal bombilla that came with my gourd kit works ok though, so i wouldn't recomend getting the bamboo bombilla if you would like to enjoy your drink.

nada mate

By: Josiah of California

purchased these because they looked cool, and raw... Only problem is the mate gets clogged in the filter holes at the bottom of this bombilla, so you don't get any liquid. I either have to find a mate that is thicker that won't clog the filter, or turn these into a decoration for something. But for now they sit in the cupboard. Bottom line, don't buy these.

Bamboo Bombilla

By: Karen of Durango, CO

I was disappointed in this bombilla. It is much thinner than my previous one which dried out and split down the side in Arizona. This one also is difficult to sip and get enough liquid because it is so narrow and the holes too small.
