drank Earl Grey Guayusa by 52teas

Thanks again to QuiltGuppy for getting me a 3-week subscription… this is week 2!

This is a very interesting take on Earl Grey… the Guayusa brings out some of the sweeter notes of the bergamot, while allowing the tangy qualities to really come through nicely. An interesting contrast playing out on the palate.

It’s really quite good!

what is ‘guayusa’?

LiberTEAS

@Kashyap: Guayusa is a tree from the Amazon. The leaves are are steeped similar to tea. The flavor is strong and smooth, no bitterness.

Kashyap

looking it up, it says it has nearly 2% by weight volume proportion of caffiene and is one of the most caffienated plants out there….wow….

LiberTEAS

Yes, but interestingly enough, it doesn’t affect me the way that coffee’s caffeine would. I felt all jittery and even nauseated when I would drink coffee. Not so with Guayusa.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
