A zesty guayusa blend that wakes you up with an invigorating twist of ginger and citrus. With more caffeine and double the antioxidants of any tea, guayusa offers clear, focused energy.
Traditionally, indigenous families wake up together at dawn to drink guayusa. They sit around the communal fire drinking gourds full of guayusa until sunrise. During this time, the village elders teach the youth about ancestral myths, hunting techniques and social values. The guayusa ritual continues to be a cornerstone of Kichwa culture, a practice that brings the family and community together around the simple experience of drinking tea.
Bring filtered or spring water to 185°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 5 minutes.
