I am looking for a birthday gift for a guy. He is a very special man, not traditional at all. He is quite open minded and I know he won't be easy to please with ordinary gifts. I wonder if a 'yerba mate tea gourd' could be a good gift for him? Can you drink plain tea in it?

Yerba mate tea gourds are an excellent choice for non traditional guys. If he has never tasted yerba mate tea this is a great occasion to give him a gorgeous mate gourd set such as this Alpaca 'Pampa' Mate Gourd Gift Set.
Yerba mate is a special herbal tea that you can find at many specialty stores. You cannot drink plain tea in a mate gourd. These gourds are made to drink only yerba mate. It's a very different flavour from tea, bitter maybe. These gourds come with instructions on how to drink yerba mate for the first time. It's very easy. You just have to try it for yourself! There are lots of designs and colours to choose from. You can take a look at these wonderful yerba mate gourds. If you are looking for original gifts this is the best gift you can give.
