Guayusa (gwhy-you-sa) is a stimulating herb produced from the leaves of a holly tree native to the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador. It has been a part of the indigenous culture for over 2,000 years. Guayusa is delicious, with a naturally smooth taste that is never bitter. It has a rich and earthy aroma and a slightly sweet finish.
Guayusa is also naturally caffeinated and has an awakening effect similar to coffee and yerba mate, but provides a slow caffeine release without the jitters or sudden crash. And as Guayusa is shade-grown, it helps the Amazon Rainforest thrive, and your purchase helps support small farmers in Ecuador.
Guayusa is grown in the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador.
For this signature blend we use only pure, delicious Guayusa. Enjoy!
Brew for 5 minutes in boiling water.
