Product Description

Details

Guayusa (gwhy-you-sa)(Ilex guayusa) is a native Amazonian tree leaf that has been brewed like tea for thousands of years by indigenous communities. A member of the holly genus, it is related to Yerba Mate’ and Yaupon. Containing abundant caffeine and a large amount of antioxidants, Guayusa offers clear, focused energy—what the native Kichwa people call “mental strength and courage.” The aroma is rich and oceanic with molasses and chicory notes. Guayusa has a much sweeter taste than mate’ due to it’s lack of tannic acid, which also allows for long steeping without going bitter.

Steep Time: 3+ min
Water Temp: 200°-212°

Japan Gyokuro "Jade Dew" Green Tea

Gyokuro is the pinnacle of Japanese loose leaf green tea. During the annual spring harvest leaves are shaded for around 20 days to increase the potency of the plant. While shaded, the plant continues to produce chlorophyll, but the natural cycle of the sunlight bleaching the leaves is inhibited. The plant also pulls more nutrients from the soil as it is not able to convert the sunshine into energy for itself. The harvest consists of the collection of just the top 3 leaves, which are quickly cut and steamed. The flavor is richly creamy, sweet, and oceanic.

Steep Time: 1-2 min
Water Temp: 140°-170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 3
