Handcrafted Glass Health Tea Wand from Wisdom Wands
may think sipping tea through a straw is odd. But in fact,
millions of people do it all the time in South America.
Yerba Mate lovers enjoy the precious herbal liquid through
a bombilla, a steel or silver straw stuck into
gourds. The Health Tea Wand has nothing to do with the national
beverage of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, but the basic
design is very similar.
hand-crafted glass straw is designed to filter tea leaves
and herbs through small strainer holes, with the purpose
of delivering more nutrients from loose tea than you’d
get with tea bags or balls. Also, the sucking action is
supposed to help you absorb nutrients more rapidly through
the lining of the mouth, directly into the bloodstream.
Whether these claims have any validity or not, we really
came to love our wand. Glass feels much better than metal
against the lips, as with bombillas, and the slow
sipping sensation is meditative. We do think that the wand
works best with herbal infusions or tisanes. We didn’t
like the effect with loose black tea. All in all, the Health
Tea Wand is a great gift for yourself or the tea lovers
in your life.
price is $19.95 for the Health Tea Wand with carrying case.
