Guayusa has been drunk in the Amazon for thousands of years and it's still essential to everyday traditions in Equador. For its stimulant and energizing properties, guayusa is traditionally brewed in the early morning hours and can be considered as an equivalent of coffee.

Indeed, guayusa contains the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, plus contains theobromine, a compound found in dark chocolate. This two compounds together provide balanced energy without causing nervousness.

Guayusa is full of antioxidant compounds such as polyphenols, flavonoids, saponins, and L-theanine. Besides fighting free radicals, these compounds have been documented with central nervous system calming properties and cardiovascular health promoting properties.

Guayusa is similar to mate tea, yet unlike mate it's nearly impossible to overbrew it. The flavor is more fruity and lack of bitterness.

100% pure Guayusa (Ilex guayusa) leaves. Ecologically wildcrafted

Best taken as an infusion (tea). Put one teaspoon of powder in a cup of water, then pour boiling water over it. Allow to steep for about 5 minutes, then strain tea and drink warm. It's traditionally drunk in the morning.
