I can’t really rate this as I don’t know what plain guayusa tastes like nor how that translates to a flavored blend of it. This was a sample from RachanaC and I enjoyed it.
It’s light and refreshing, the dark color was not distracting and let me wake from just the tea’s taste and caffeine. Quite a nice smooth start to the dark, unearthly eartly morning I sampled it on. Ironically the the second cup I had for dessert yesterday didn’t keep me awake and I think it would hold up to milk if you like that. Like I said, I can’t judge it well but this is a pleasant flavored tea. Now who would make plain guayusa? Hmm…

Does it have a bigger caffeine kick than tea?

Hey Batrachoid. Glad you enjoyed the pleasant flavor. Guayusa is indeed perfect for the early morning time, as that is when Amazonian communities traditionally drink it. Send me a note if you would like to sample some plain guayusa and we’ll be sure to send you some samples. Cheers!

Batrachoid

@Jillian No, I’d say it’s the same kick, just more gradual in its delivery.

@Tykler Gage: Oh, wow, I meant that as a joke since we all know Runa’s just about the only guayusa producer right now but I would really like that if it’s not too much trouble. I seem to be starting my days at three or four far too often…
