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°

China White Peony "Bai Mu Dan" White Tea

White teas are made only from the newly sprouted buds and/or young leaves of the tea plant. The buds are heat braised in covered pans or dried in direct sun with minimal superficial oxidization. Classic style white peony is made in April, when the leaves are at their tastiest. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined. The flavor is delicate, herbaceous, with an autumnal aroma and a very smooth, sweet, nutty flavor.

Steep Time: 30 seconds-3 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
