Oh the Beauty of a Bombilla! This is one of Mel's favorite ways to drink tea. It's like a straw, only it's closed off at the bottom and has tiny holes to interfile the plant matter. It's a gorgeous way to drink herbal blends as you can look at the gorgeous plant matter floating in the top of your cup, admire, and give thanks for the magic in your cup! Truly a great way to drink your herbal tea!
