I love this tea and will definitely be purchasing this again. A wonderful addition to my morning routine!!!
Protect The Rainforest
Guayusa is grown by small farmers in jungle gardens that use the natural canopy of the jungle to grow real shade-grown guayusa. The more guayusa exported, the more rainforest that is protected!
Smooth, Never Bitter
Unlike it's cousin, Yerba Mate, Wild Guayusa is smooth and never bitter. It takes up other flavors very well and has a smooth, unassuming flavor that's delicious with a dash of lemon.
Growing Guayusa Popularity
Guayusa is a rather new crop to the global tea market.
In just 2008, global production of guayusa was zero pounds. Nowadays, there are more than a million pounds of guayusa exported out of the Ecuadorian rainforests by indigenous forest farmers.
Why is it so amazing?
Guayusa contains nearly double the antioxidants of green tea. It contains almost as much caffeine per cup as a cup of coffee. Plus guayusa contains no tannins, the compounds that can make tea and coffee bitter, so it's a naturally smooth and sweet beverage.
