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°
