Guayusa leaf is a phenomenal naturally-growing leaf found in the rain forests of Ecuador. It is treasured for its unique balance of caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins, and amino acids.
There are two unique elements to this exotic leaf.
First, the caffeine content is unique in that it provides a slow release of caffeine for awake and sustainable energy similar to that of coffee and yerba mate, but without any of the jitters or sudden drop offs. The caffeine content in guayusa is slightly more than black tea but less than a cup of coffee.
Second, it is extremely flavorful! Guayusa leaf does not contain the tannin that is present in black tea, giving traditional tea its bitter aftertaste. Instead, the rich earthy aroma and slightly sweet tones make it a unique and attractive alternative to most leaves and beans.
Mixed with our natural ingredients, guayusa helps make a wonderfully flavorful cup of tea time and time again. Try our unique blends today!
