Gift Guide: The Argentine

The Argentine, and any other mate drinker will love this beautiful horn sculpted mate cup and straw set. Made in Argentina, the cups are one of many great pieces owners Sandra and Marcelo found on their most recent trip to Buenos Aires.
Mate culture in South America is fascinating, where the bitter green-tea is drank socially and with wonderful ritual. 
Great gifts for anyone who loves Buenos Aires as much as La Merceria does!
Mate Cups, $39. Tea Towels, $18, Yerba Mate $8
