Earth & People Friendly

Guayusa Leaf Organic

Price per oz.

This boldly caffeinated Amazonian variant of the holly tree has been traditionally used for its stimulating effects and for sharpening the mind. Slightly sweet and earthy in character, this close cousin to yerba mate yields a smooth, round flavor and steeps a beautifully rich dark green hue.

Organic Guayusa (pronounced gwy-you-sa) is a native tree leaf that has been brewed like tea by indigenous people in the Ecuadorian Amazon for thousands of years. Guayusa is Earth & People Friendly. Although guayusa is harvested from rainforests, its cultivation actually helps rainforest preservation. The holly plant grows under the tree canopy, so rainforests are maintained where guayusa is harvested. Additionally, the farmers who grow this tea are all local, native villagers.

Now you have another option for your morning ritual - a warm and comforting beverage with all the health benefits of tea and mate, none of the negative effects of coffee, and that offers a boost of natural, focused energy: guayusa. One cup of guayusa has the same caffeine levels as a cup of coffee, and twice that of a cup of tea, with none of the jitters that can accompany coffee consumption. Guayusa also does not stain teeth like coffee or tea can, so one additional benefit to swapping out coffee for guayusa is whiter teeth!
