Much too large
I was very excited to receive this item. It is gorgeous, and looked very promising. However, I have found after many attempts at use that it is just too big to function as a proper cup for mate.
The reason is that it is just too large a vessel. To fill it up to 2/3 full of yerba, take a significant amount of yerba. After a couple cold pours, the hot pours still taste much too strong, because the hot water is coming into contact with too much fresh yerba.
"So", I hear you asking. "Why not just pour in less yerba?" Excellent question. I tried that. While it does work to lessen the strong flavor of the mate, the yerba in the cup is too low to make a proper mountain. So, you can't make it last as long as you would like.
Overall a disappointment.
