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.

Licorice Root Herbal Tea

In Sanskrit, it is called “Malathi” or “sweet stalk”. The Greeks named it “sweet root” and the Chinese call it “gan cao”, which means “sweet grass”. The intense sweetness can be traced to glycyrrhizic acid that is 50 times sweeter than sugar. Besides its use to flavor candy and medicines it is commonly used for its anti-inflammatory actions in digestion as well as for arthritis. The aroma and flavor is sweet and comforting, reminiscent of anise or fennel, but considerably stronger.
