2 x 100g pack of dry loose Guayusa Tea leaf
Ilex Guayusa tree is a plant grown in Amazonia which dry leaves have been used for centuries by native people to make a unique tea. This natural energy drink works perfectly as a coffee replacement as it is rich in caffeine, amino acids and free from tannins. It is twice as rich in antioxidants than traditional teas. The Green Guayusa tea has refreshing non-bitter taste, thanks to an innovative production process where natural oxidation is stopped after harvesting.
The guayusa tea is harvested by hand (wildcrafted) by different communities located around the Amazon jungle of Ecuador. Our supplier is a social and Fairtrade company, based in Ecuador, whose main goal is to provide a reliable source of income and greater opportunities to the natives involved in the harvesting and production of Guayusa leaves.
Pour boiling water over the tea and leave it for 5 minutes. Use 2g of loose leaves per cup.
