traditionally you drink with the leaves pretty rough so no debris gets into your mouth, however the finer yerba produces a stronger taste which some people like. There is nothing wrong with how you are drinking it, but if you want to drink the finer ground stuff you might have to invest in a very fine bombilla, the one you have is probably too large.
I like drinking yerba with the large particles in there as is it a very smooth sip and great flavor.
