I didn’t like tea growing up, but now it is a passion. I often want a caffeinated drink that isn’t coffee. I used to drink a lot of yerba mate tea, because it lights me and increases my mental focus and energy. I’ve discovered Guayusa now.
Guayusa is pronounced “gwhy-you-suh” and it’s been enjoyed for centuries in other parts of the world. Local growers who live in the Amazon rainforest grow this on small farms and I feel good about supporting them. Guayusa isn’t technically a “tea,” it’s an herb that comes from the holly tree (Ilex guayusa), which has nothing to do with the tea plant Camellia sinensis that gives us black and green tea.
