Guayusa is a plant found in South America and is similar to the somewhat more well known mate tea. While guayusa has caffeine, many report the affects to be much smoother and less caffeine “jitters.” Guayusa tastes very similar to something in between a white tea and a black tea – it’s quite refreshing and makes an excellent cold brew iced tea as well.
We’ve chosen to pair our organic guayusa tea with a bit of green rooibos and citrus (lemon & orange). It really is the most refreshing and invigorating cuppa you’ll find – the guayusa is a natural pairing for citrus and fruit flavors. It stands wonderfully on its own, but if you must, a drop of honey will accent those citrus and grassy notes.
We call it the contemplative blend because it’s just one of those teas you like to sip and enjoy while you let your mind wander.
Each 1 oz bag makes 15-20 cups of tea.
