We are absolutely in love with our new Tropical Guayusa tea blend! The lush notes of coconut and lemongrass have us all feeling transported to paradise.

Guayusa is the dried leaves and stems of a South American rainforest holly that’s a close botanical relative to the more well-known Yerba Mate. A tall tree native to the Upper Amazon, Guayusa has only rarely been collected by botanists and is known almost exclusively as a cultivated plant.

Add a little honey, vanilla, and cream to marry it all together and wow...what an indulgent morning treat! The ritual of making a beautiful cup of tea infused with the uplifting scent of flowers and a mildly stimulating caffeine boost can easily elevate the mood. It might just replace your morning cup of coffee.
