I had to try this, just for the Amon Tobin reference. Never had guayusa before, though.
The color of the tea steeped amused me. It’s a murky green, and it’s the first time I’ve noticed that color when brewing tea. Pleasant taste, though. I tasted the vanilla first, followed by the lavendar and spearmint. The flavors are balanced in terms of prominance, though. For each sip, the order of herbs I tasted could change pretty easily. I like that in a tea.
It does pack a punch, though. But a relaxing punch, even if that’s contradictory; a refreshing energy boost.
Very smooth blend. No bitterness whatsoever.
